Ian Joyce, CEO is delighted to announce the appointment of Vikki Pegg to the role of Head of School for our new eco-friendly school Watling Primary being built on the Western Flank expansion area, Whitehouse.
Vikki will join the Trust in January 2023, having been a Deputy Headteacher in a local primary school since 2016. This is a natural progression for Vikki who will draw on her many years of primary expertise to lay firm foundations at primary level for the Trust and will be instrumental in the formative stages of the curriculum and the exciting extra-curricular activities that will be provided to children at the school.
Watling Primary School has been designed to be eco-friendly capturing natural light and having intelligent controls that react to the weather to conserve energy. Solar panels and air source heat pumps will reduce the use of fossil fuels and save on energy bills. Building on these ecological principles, students will benefit from a forest school focus with an emphasis on outdoor learning.
Ian said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Vikki to the Trust community especially as she joins us early enough to have a significant impact on the development of the primary school’s syllabus to provide outstanding Care, Education and Opportunity to all its students and staff.’
