Claire Willis, current Assistant Principal at Murrayfield Primary Academy, will take over running Murrayfield Primary Academy from current Principal Neil Winn on 1st January. Neil will be working with her on a gradual transition before he leaves the school at the end of December.
Claire Willis, Principal, Murrayfield Primary Academy said:
“I am absolutely delighted to take on the role of Principal at Murrayfield Primary Academy and am committed to ensuring our pupils keep achieving those marginal gains that lead to great progress. This will happen by working not only with our teachers but also with the other schools in the Paradigm Trust and our wonderful community. During my time as Principal, Murrayfield will continue to look at new ways of learning to ensure all our children have access to the education they need to reach their potential.”
Bill Holledge, CEO of Paradigm Trust said:
“We are so pleased that, following a full and thorough selection process, Claire is taking on the role of Principal at Murrayfield Primary Academy. She has been a huge support to Neil and his team and instrumental in ensuring the school continues to develop and flourish.”
Following twenty years of teaching experience across primary, secondary and international schools where she held roles including Head of Faculty and Director of Learning, Claire joined Murrayfield in January 2018 as Assistant Principal and Special Education Needs Coordinator. Since then she has helped pupils make strong progress in their education and has been instrumental in setting up a Special Educational Needs Unit at the school for children with communication and interaction needs from September this year.
Murrayfield was rated Good by OFSTED this time last year after standards in English and Mathematics rose dramatically, leading to the school’s best overall attainment results in its history. The school is responsible for the education of 60 Ipswich children per year group, as well as a 26-place nursery.
Paradigm Trust ensures all its schools offers a fantastic education in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, supported by enrichment opportunities that enable children to have the best opportunity to reach their potential.
