A NEW head teacher has enjoyed a ‘busy and exciting’ first term at Egerton Primary School.

Caroline Lowe says there hasn’t been a spare moment as she gets to know her 205 pupils, 30 members of staff and hundreds of parents.

She feels grateful for all their support.

Mrs Lowe said: “It’s a very steep learning curve coming into a new school, but everyone has been wonderfully supportive in my first term.”

She brings 23 years of teaching and deputy head experience to her new role.

“As well as pupils, staff and parents, it’s been great to meet our neighbours in the community,” she said.

“We have Egerton Pre School on our doorstep.

“Their pupils will be special guests at our nativity play next week and we’re welcoming residents from Abbeyfield House into school on December 20.

“Our school choir sang at Knutsford Christmas lights switch-on and helped keep spirits high for volunteers at The Toy Appeal.

“So it has been a busy but very enjoyable first term, and at this time of year, we also have end-of-term theatre treats and discos for pupils, a Christmas fayre and nativity play.”

Caroline is looking forward to 2024 and the opportunities it brings.

She added: “My job is to ensure Egerton remains a good school and to take it even further.

“With our new vision, ‘Ready to learn. Ready to thrive. Ready for tomorrow’, I’m looking forward to fine-tuning the curriculum and making it even more adventurous for young, curious minds.

“Egerton pupils already are Global Citizens, but as a teaching team we’re ready to enhance their experience with increased focus on “Sustainability goals linked to the environment and global awareness. “We’re also well on our way to achieving the Primary Science Quality Mark, so watch this space.”
