Vow to keep up the good work at Winsley
New Winsley Primary School headteacher Becky Wilson is aiming to promote and further develop the high standards that saw the school achieve an outstanding Ofsted result in 2011.
Mrs Wilson, who lives in Trowbridge, was previously deputy headteacher at Wansdyke Primary School in Devizes, where she was also acting headteacher for eight months.
The 36-year-old has taken over from Simon White, who left the school at Easter after six years to become the new headteacher at Shaw Primary School.
Mrs Wilson said: “This is my first headship and I am relishing the challenge of moving the school forward. The school is in a lovely location surrounded by a warm community.
“The start of term has been brilliant. All the teachers, governors, children and parents have been very kind and welcoming and it’s an exciting time for me and the school.”
Winsley Primary School is not the only school in the area to start the new term under a different head, with Westwood with Iford Primary School welcoming new headteacher Ian Rockey.
The 39-year-old, who is married with twin baby daughters, has come from Moorlands School Federation in Bath, where he was a deputy headteacher.
Mr Rockey said: “This is my first head role and it’s an exciting new challenge. Leading the school is a real privilege and it’s been a lot of fun meeting new parents and getting to know the children.
“My aim, like most headteachers, is to make the school a true community. I also want to make sure we continue to deliver high quality education and continue to take the school forward.”
