I noticed the signs were being changed yesterday to reflect the arrival of Budehaven’s new headteacher, following the departure of Tracey Reynolds who has moved to take up another educational role challenge during the summer.
Mr Dominic Wilkes was appointed back in April. Previously, Mr Wilkes was a deputy headteacher at a large secondary school in Bolton (Little Lever School) and has a wealth of experience in education. Bolton is a very different place to Bude (I have lived there!) but Little Lever School is a large village within the town, so also has a community feel to it.
Welcome to Mr Wilkes in his new role at Budehaven. Here is his first letter to parents/carers.
