COME AND JOIN OUR EXCITING NEW JOURNEY
A warm welcome to everyone as I begin my journey as your new headteacher. I am very proud to be the new leader of Mayfield Primary School as we start a new journey and a brand new chapter - with a new website as well! As an experienced headteacher, I can already see there are many positives to build upon and can also see where we can make those quick gains and put into place systems that will drive our school forward and then sustain our level of performance. These are exciting times and the months and years ahead will see us all drive forward to make Mayfield a source of pride.
Mayfield is a school that can take advice, possess humility, be strong and have conviction when we believe we are making decisions for the right reasons, yet also know that we are human and will constantly learn, as we all should, as we move everyday through life.
We will never be afraid to try new ideas and initiatives or make changes that we believe will improve the social and academic experience for our children. I expect us to be bold and to dare to do. I expect the best from everyone at Mayfield - we will not compromise as, over the years ahead, we become ever stronger in our teaching, learning and behaviour expectations - a positive, determined attitude to school life is a necessity for everyone who walks through our door.
Be in no doubt that teaching is our passion. It is our drive. It is more than a job - it is a way of life. It is our reason for being here. Everything is geared towards valuing every social, moral and academic achievement in a climate that enables that deeper, hands on, experience based learning that many would describe as unlocking the spiritual development in everyone.
'Valuing Every Achievement' is a constant thread. A vision that is everywhere in our school. The new curriculum that we are developing carries and embodies this as we aim to send our children onto the next stage in their lives socially and academically ready, in equal measure, to make a difference to our local community and beyond.
I look forward to saying hello to everyone as we take our school on an extensive and, at times, radical journey forward together.
Exciting times, lets turn the page and find out what we can achieve...
Mr G T Denton (Headteacher)
