Headteacher Katharine Passmore left the Stewkley school at the end of term. Della Peacock will be filling the role from the beginning of the summer term.
Mrs Peacock is committed to her current role in Year 6 and wishes to ensure that the children in that class retain some continuity in learning at what is a very important stage of their education.
For that reason her appointment as headteacher has been deferred until after the Easter holiday.
In the meantime there will be an Executive Head, Krys Kuzminska, seconded from Newton Longville in place for the beginning of the spring term 2015.
She will be supported by Mrs Peacock in her role as Acting Deputy Head and existing Deputy Head, Lucy Deverill.
