CEO's Blog - 23 October 2020
Congratulations and Thank You
Firstly, congratulations to Caroline Hoddinott, our vice-chair of trustees, who has been awarded an OBE for services to education. Throughout her career, Caroline has worked tirelessly to improve outcomes for pupils locally and nationally. We are fortunate to have the support of such an experienced and talented education specialist and I am delighted that Caroline’s contribution to the education sector has been recognised at the highest level.
Congratulations also go to NWPA on a successful Health & Safety COVID-19 inspection. Reassuringly, the inspection highlighted the benefits of collaboration and confirmed that we are doing all we can to keep everyone in our family of schools as safe as possible.
I have been reflecting with pride and gratitude on the commitment shown by everyone in our Rivers family over the past eight weeks. Our pupils, far from being the “lost generation” we hear so much about in the media, have shown robustness and resilience and our schools have kept learning at the forefront of everything they do. So, congratulations and thank you, everyone, for your dedication, your willingness to support one another and your hard work.
I wish you all a restful and very well-deserved half-term break.
