Just saw this on the school website. Can any current parents of the school give some insights?

Russel Ellicott is great and I think the response to his new post will be overwhelmingly positive. He is well liked and respected by the parents and most importantly the students and I think this will be a very exciting time for Pate's. As a current parent I couldn't be more pleased.

We totally agree with Sackboy's comments. A fantastic appointment.

Absolutely.He's very well liked.Apparently there was prolonged applause and cheering by the pupils when it was announced in assembly this morning. An excellent choice.

I know nothing of the school or the man but in my experience, appointing a HT from within is not usually successful.

I just read the heads update and immediately told Ds1 that Russel Elicott was to be the new head. said that there had been a lot of cheering when the dc's were told.I googled him and was pleased to find he was a deputy head at the school:) :roll: (bit slow there) and called to ds1 to tell him. He replied that he knew, Mr Enticott was the teacher that visited him at primary as well! :lol: The news has been very well received in our house. I would speculate that they now need another deputy head. :D

Isn't that a rather inflammatory post? My kids are at Pate's and there was almost a standing ovation for Russel Ellicot in the whole school assembly this morning!

Are you not very busy?

It is just a statement of my very long experience in teaching. I thought everyone was free to post opinions but clearly not in Gloucestershire. :roll:

It sounds to me like you have some axe to grind in regard to the success of others!
