Over the past six months the governors of Raughton Head C of E School have been through the selection process to recruit a full time head teacher for our school.
On behalf of the governors I am delighted to inform you that Mrs Alison Dickinson has been offered (and accepted) the role.
Over the last 18 months Mrs Dickinson has done a fabulous job as Acting Head, ensuring the school continues to improve and provide a safe, fun environment for our pupils to learn, grow and thrive. With a permanent head in place, the school can look forward to stability and security. The future for our school is indeed a bright one.
I am sure you will join with me in congratulating Alison on this appointment.
Matthew Burbury - Chair of Governors

Firstly, many thanks to all those who have supported me so well throughout the interview process for the position of full-time headteacher at the school. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at the school and firmly believe that we can further develop the school in providing a safe, secure and happy place for children to flourish.
Most of April has been spent away from school but we have had time for a 7-a-side football competition for children in year 5 and 6 as well as 2 of our children attending Caldew School for maths enhancement classes.
The junior children have started their weekly swimming lessons which they are enjoying and we hope that all our Year 6 children will be able to swim the recommended 25m by the end of their sessions.
The PTA organised a fantastic Easter Trail on Good Friday which was well attended and even better - the sun shone brightly. It was a lovely community event.
The Life Bus visited school and gave children the opportunity to learn more about our personal and social relationships helping us as teachers to support children’s health, wellbeing and achievement. This also links in with our visit from PCSO Graham Kirkpatrick who will be discussing Internet Safety with both parents and children.
Dinosaurs is our whole school topic this term and we are looking forward to a trip to Rose Castle as part of our local history studies.
Our grounds have been made safer with the installation of a new fence around the perimeter and we are awaiting installation of our netball and football posts so that they are a little more secure than we have at present.
