Headteacher Carol Dallas has just taken up her new role at Taverham High School. Here she tells us a bit about her past and her ambitions for the school.

I am delighted to be given the opportunity of introducing myself as the new headteacher of Taverham High School.

After teaching for the majority of my career in London I was very pleased to return to Norfolk, firstly to CNS and then as headteacher of Broadland High School.

As a resident of Taverham, I am passionate about this area and the young people who live here.

Taverham is an excellent school and I am honoured to be given this position. The Ofsted visit recently confirmed the schools commitment to high standards of behaviour and safety and Mrs Plater and the staff work exceptionally hard to provide a rich and good quality education.

I am ambitious for the students and want every individual to feel that they can achieve their very best academically and personally in a caring, supportive setting.  Students should feel excited about going to school and be inspired by their teachers. We will work together to ensure staff continue to be creative, refresh their skills and work with other partners to enthuse and motivate the pupils that we teach.

I enjoy nothing more than watching students grow and develop into polite, respectful and confident young people who make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live. I hope that you will support me by working in partnership with the school to enrich the experiences offered to students and give them the guidance and encouragement they require.

This is a very important time for Taverham High School, we have a thriving sixth form that will grow and develop from strength to strength. It is a key priority for the school and the sixth formers will provide the inspiration and lead for our younger students who will look up to these teachers, engineers and surgeons of the future.

Families who are interested in applying to Taverham are always welcome to visit us and find out what our school has to offer. It would be a pleasure to show you around.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the future and keeping you updated with the latest news from Taverham High School.
