Future Developments

As we move towards the exam season we thank you for your continued support. We have made significant progress and it has been wonderful to receive so many positive comments from parents, carers and the local and wider community.

Thanks go to Karen Blackburn and Rosie Alamo-Keilty (Acting Head of School and Acting Deputy Head) who were seconded from Gosforth Academy and will, from September 2020, return there. We commend them for their commitment to the school and their relentless focus on improvement.

At Jesmond Park Academy, we are well positioned to move from strength to strength. The teamwork and dedication of all staff is helping to ensure that all students can ‘Create their future!’

We have already started the recruitment process to ensure that we have a new permanent Principal in post by January 2021.

Following completion of a thorough consultation and selection process, the Acting Executive Team, with the exception of Allon Welsh who withdrew from the process, were interviewed by a panel of MAT Trustees and the CEO.

The decision has been taken by the Trustees to appoint the following Acting Executive Team members into their current roles on a permanent basis:

David Sheppard – Chief Operating Officer
Corinne Raybould – Chief Projects Officer
Chris Duckett – Executive Director of Teaching, Learning & Communications
Joanne Lowther – Executive Director of Performance
Allon Welsh will remain as Acting Executive Director of Curriculum until the end of the academic year.
