New Head teacher

Robert Bruce Middle School has appointed, a new Head teacher; Karen D’Angelo will start her post in September 2012.

 

Karen’s current position is Assistant Head at George Pindar Community Sports College, located in Scarborough - after completing 18 months as an Associate Deputy Head within this school on a management program. Karen also has previous experience of working in inner city schools in both Birmingham and Coventry.

 

Cllr David Sawyer, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “A good Head teacher can dramatically impact upon a school’s whole ethos and can serve to achieve great things in terms of educational delivery. We will continue to work with the school to drive up standards as we welcome Karen onboard and look forward to the school’s future.”

 

Karen D’Angelo said: “Robert Bruce Middle School is a place where each child is valued. I feel privileged and honoured to be given the opportunity to work with the  staff, students, parents, governors, and this community to build on the school's strengths.  We will work together to deliver the highest quality teaching and learning and a wide range of activities that test the students and meet their individual needs. I want to strengthen the links with feeder primary schools and secondary schools to create more opportunities for the whole community to come into the school so that the students understand that learning is a life-long process. Education does not finish at the end of the school day it is about the buzz of discovering that your opportunities are endless. I am relishing the challenges ahead.”

 

The school’s last Ofsted inspection, carried out in November 2011, reported that considerable progress had been made since the testing of pupils in the summer and therefore reached the conclusion that improvement is ongoing.
