A Warm Welcome To Oreston

Welcome to Oreston Community Academy!


 It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself to you all as the new Headteacher of Oreston Community Academy.  It is a real privilege to be given the opportunity of leading such a fantastic school. 


I join Oreston Community Academy having been a Headteacher in Cornwall previously.  Prior to this, I have taught and been in leadership roles in other primary schools across Plymouth.  I also have experience of being in a Multi Academy Trust with both primary schools and secondary schools and I hope to use this experience to support Oreston as it becomes further established in Westcountry Schools Trust.  I know that schools working together collaboratively supports all children in succeeding.


I am passionate about inclusion, improving outcomes for all children and challenging all children to achieve their very best.  I believe that a school should be a place where both children and staff are inspired to do their best and feel excited about the broad and balanced curriculum on offer, whilst being given strong encouragement to succeed. 


I am looking forward to working with the whole community as we continue to strive for success for our children.  By working together, we can ensure that all children really enjoy coming to school, maintaining a love of learning and making excellent progress at the same time.  I actively encourage parental involvement at all stages of your child’s school life and I can see that this is already a real strength at Oreston. I will be available to support you and discuss any matters which are concerning you.  If you are unable to catch me on the playground, please do make an appointment to see me.


If you are interested in your child joining our school, please do make an appointment to come and meet the staff, children and take a tour of our school. We look forward to meeting you.
