Forest school’s Deputy Headteacher has been appointed as the new Headteacher of Vauvert Primary.
Adrian Paul (pictured), who has been Deputy Headteacher of Forest Primary for the last nine years and has been a primary school teacher for over 25 years, will take over as Headteacher from September 2022, replacing Tim Walters.
An opportunity for Vauvert parents and carers to meet Mr Paul will be provided during the summer term.
Deputy Andrea Dudley-Owen, President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, said: “Adrian has proven himself as an excellent Deputy Headteacher during the last decade and is widely respected amongst his peers.
“Ensuring staff are developed into leadership positions as part of local succession planning is a key part of our Education Strategy, to invest in leadership and development, so the Committee was delighted that Adrian’s appointment as the new Headteacher of Vauvert Primary was yet another example of this. I am sure the Forest Primary School community will miss Adrian greatly but this is a fantastic opportunity for him and the school. I would like to express my thanks to Mr Walters for all of his efforts at Vauvert over the years and wish him the very best for the future.’
Mr Paul said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as Headteacher at Vauvert Primary School and am looking forward to working with the entire school community over the coming months and years.
“Everyone was so friendly and welcoming during the interview process that spending time there was a pleasure. I will miss Forest Primary immensely when I leave. I have loved working with the children, their families and the staff and know just what a special place it is.”
