New Head Announced For Netherwood

Thursday April 5 2012

A HEAD teacher has been appointed to take on the new Netherwood ALC when it opens in September.

The new school - which will see Darfield Foulstone and Wombwell High School closed - will be under the guidance of Toby Eastaugh, from Spen Valley Sports College in Kirklees.

Bob Bloomer, chair of Netherwood’s temporary governing body, said: “This is an exciting time for Netherwood as the construction phase draws to a close.

"The Advanced Learning Centre is part of the borough-wide provision of brand new modern facilities for learning and is designed to sit comfortably within the country park. It will provide an excellent environment for learning and is intended to be a resource that the community will feel proud to be associated with.”

I met this guy last night on the open evening. He addressed the parents and explained that the students from the two schools had some subjects that were examined from different examination boards which would result in extra classes put on until the end of the academic 2 year period until the same exam board can be used for both sets of students. ( the change has been going on for 2 years why has this not been addressed in anticipation that this might happen to cut down costs and reflect forward thinking ?)  I asked a few questions one of which was about provisions for the students that will have to stay on the extra year ( existing year 10 will now have stay in compulsory education till year 12 ), he had no constructive answer. Eventually he walked away and I felt dismissed as he didn't even excuse his departure he just walked away from me. It was clear he wasn't there to answer questions and as a parent I felt concerned that a man in his position should have more time for parents and at least be polite. If he governs the students by example there may be some behaviour problems.
