I was pleased to meet Sarah Edwards, who has succeeded the much respected Pete Woodman as Head of The Weald School, Billingshurst.
Sarah is brining enormous experience to bear as the school comes back from Covid. Students and teachers are glad to be back and attendance is better than they have ever known.
I was grateful for Sarah’s time in talking me through issues of huge concern and sadness to staff and pupils. Covid has compounded pressures felt by young people. Following Mental Health Awareness Week, I have posted a statement about young people’s mental health: Mental Health Awareness- Supporting Young People | Jeremy Quin
