I wish you a very warm welcome to Oundle C of E Primary School’s website. It will give you a taster of the school with some interesting photos and information, but nothing beats visiting the building and school community to get a true ‘feel’ of what Oundle CE Primary is all about. Or you can ask those who know the school in the town and I am sure they will give us the positive review you are looking for.
I will be taking on the headship at the school from 1st September 2021, and I am very much looking forward to being part of the school and Oundle community going forward. I have previous experience as a Head Teacher of a similar sized school; including as a Church of England School and a Peterborough Diocese Education Trust School. The ethos of both of these are important to me and I believe they offer the best opportunities for their schools whilst never losing sight of what is valuable to a young child’s personal development and their education in the primary setting.
Mrs McMurdo was the Head for 19 years at the school and this is going to be a big pair of shoes for me to put on. However, I am excited by my new adventure and look forward to bringing my experience, ideas and aspirations to the school.
If you are currently considering a school place for your child then please contact the school office to organise a tour and I will be happy to show you round once the new term starts.
I look forward to working with you all and hope to meet you soon.
Mrs Jo Griffin
