New head at Frampton Cotterell Primary School

FRAMPTON Cotterell C of E Primary School has unveiled a new leadership team.

Hannah Hornig is stepping up from deputy head to the role of acting head teacher after Peter Barnard moved on to a new school.

Mr Barnard, who had been at Frampton Cotterell for 12 years, is moving on to St Michaels Primary School in Stoke Gifford.

Special educational needs coordinator Catherine Walker has been appointed acting deputy head teacher.

Key Stage 2 lead Alex Knight and Key Stage 1 lead Abigail Anderton make up the rest of the leadership team.

Mrs Hornig said she was "honoured and privileged" to be taking on the acting head teacher role from January.

She said: "I look forward to working very closely with the governors, staff, parents, church and local community to ensure that our children 'become the best they can'.

"I will build upon the success that the school has already achieved and take the school forward even further.

"I intend to ensure that our school continues with the same ethos, nurturing care and Christian values that have been developed over many years.

"Together with the Senior Leadership team and the unwavering support of the highly skilled whole school team, we are extremely excited about the journey ahead."
