A warm welcome to all the staff at Roseacre Primary Academy who joined AtC on 1 December. Janet Carroll and her team have been working alongside AtC for about 12 months now in preparation for the transfer. Lots of work has taken place to ensure a smooth transition, particularly in the administrative and financial work between AtC and Roseacre. Janet will become AtC’s Primary Education Director and joins the executive team. We are looking forward to developing partnerships at different levels with Roseacre including teacher exchanges. It is also great to welcome Alana Frith, the outgoing Chair of Trustees at Roseacre, to the board of Trustees at AtC. Alana is a national leader of governance and brings valuable expertise to the board.
