Dear Parents/Carers

Further to my letter of 14 December 2015, I am pleased to confirm the appointment of Mr Roger Burman as Executive Principal of the Aylesbury Vale Academy and he will commence with us immediately after the Easter holidays.  He will also be in the academy for a few days prior to his formal start.

Mr Burman is very experienced and has already been a Headteacher for 14 years - this will be his third Headship.  His current school, Winterhill in Rotherham, is a National Support School and Mr Burman is a National Leader in Education which gives you an indication of the esteem in which he is held.  For the last two years Mr Burman has also been Executive Head of a special school.

There are many similarities between the profile of Mr Burman’s current school and AVA and in his time there he has been able to significantly improve outcomes for its students.

The latest Ofsted report for his current school was good overall, but with leadership and management being described as outstanding and to quote directly from the report:

“The passion and ambition of the Headteacher to provide the best education for the students of this community has driven up standards significantly over the last six years.”

“The Headteacher is an inspirational leader who is uncompromising in driving whole-school improvement.”

One of Mr Burman’s referees notes: “He is an exceptional leader.  His commitment to the outcomes, progress and well-being of young people in both his own school and others is evident and pervasive”.

I hope you will join me in offering Mr Burman a very warm welcome to AVA. I am delighted to have secured his services and wish him every success at AVA.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

MR G JOYNER
