Online Safety / Safeguarding

Welcome

Welcome to Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and patience as we strengthen our structures and continue to strive for improvement. There is no doubt that we have witnessed profound change in the last three years, and this has been strongly supported by the community. The effort by all as we come out of the Covid abyss has been truly inspirational and I thank you. Since the beginning of this academic year, I have seen young people enjoying their education, wanting to achieve and proving fine ambassadors for the school and their families. With this foundation, I am confident we will improve outcomes and increase opportunities whilst maintaining our nurturing expertise and ensuring the safety of our school community.

I am also grateful to all the staff for their hard work, resilience and patience. We said goodbye to a few long-term staff and wished them all the best, especially Mr. Richard Jones, who I know has a lot of respect from our community and I want to thank him for all his efforts and wish him good luck in the future. It remains that the teachers and support staff have demonstrated the care and dedication that allows the pupils to realise their potential and build essential self-esteem. We have a great deal of work to do, but I am confident that together, as a collective force, we can do it. The culture of the school is a positive one with a ‘can do’ and ‘want to’ attitude and, again, I thank all stakeholders for helping us build this momentum over the last three years.

We are now pleased to announce that we have a stable and consistent senior leadership team with strong attributes and defined roles and responsibilities. They know that they are part of a team at an extremely exciting time and they are very committed to being part of the school’s future.

The Trust and I remain deeply committed to the success of this school and so we plan for me to remain here to continue to oversee improvements. Should you wish to speak to me directly about any of these developments then please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the school. In the meantime, thank you once again for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Darren Turner
Executive Principal
