Letter from Mr Richardson

Wednesday 21st April

Dear parents and carers

I have had to write some difficult letters to you over the last year but this one has perhaps been the most challenging! I write to inform you of my resignation as headteacher at Helsby Hillside. I have thoroughly enjoyed my twelve years as headteacher at this wonderful school and so I am very sad to be leaving.

I am incredibly proud of what we have all achieved and I would like to thank all the staff and governors over the years for their dedication and commitment. The ethos we have established of doing the very best we can for every child in our care has helped us create a supportive and nurturing environment where children very much enjoy opportunities to ‘Learn, Laugh and Play’! Thanks also to all the parents, grandparents and friends of the school who have all contributed to the school’s successes. I look forward to thinking more about these and to sharing fond memories with you over the coming term.

I am looking forward to an exciting new chapter where I develop my advisory and consultancy role and continue my inspection work. I hope to be very busy!

My heart is full of very special Hillside memories and these will stay with me forever. I will miss all of the children and all of the staff who work so hard to do the very best for the children in their care. I know that the school will continue to flourish in the future and I wish you and your children all the very best for a bright and prosperous future.

The governing body are currently working on arrangements to recruit a new headteacher and they will be in touch with you soon.

Craig Richardson, Headteacher
