At Sandal Magna Community Academy we believe that our school sits within the heart and the future of the community.
We aim to serve the needs of all the families within the local area, with a commitment to developing the social cohesion of our community and to maximise the life chances of each and every child. We endeavour to work in close partnership with parents for the benefit of our children.
When our children leave the Academy we want them to be happy, enthusiastic, confident, curious, tolerant and most importantly; well prepared for their next stage of learning.
Mrs Louise Sennett
As you are aware, Sandal Magna Community Academy is part of Enhance Academy Trust. At the beginning of June, Kevin Jones, CEO of the Trust, approached me to ask if I would take on the role of Executive Headteacher over both Sandal Magna and St. Helen’s Primary in Hemsworth. This role will be for a temporary period of 12 months.
This means that Mr Elliott, our Deputy Headteacher, will become Head of School at Sandal Magna from the 1st of September. Although I will be around school each week, Mr Elliott will take over many of my day-to-day duties and will be the main point of contact if any parents have any concerns. Mr Elliott has worked alongside me for over 4 years and I know that he will make a fabulous Head of School for the next year.
We have also asked Mrs Shepherd, our current Y6 teacher and KS2 Leader, to take on the role of Assistant Headteacher. She will therefore share some management responsibilities and will also continue to work closely with parents when needed.
