A COVENTRY teacher has returned to her former primary school as an interim headteacher to help make a difference to the lives of the children and give something back to the place which first inspired her to go into education.
Megan Scullion has been appointed at St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, part of the Romero Catholic Academy.
She joins the school from her joint role of Strategic Lead for School Improvement at the Academy and year six teacher at Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School.
Megan will be making changes to the school environment, including creating a more welcoming front office and remodelling the school hall.
She said it was a real honour to be handed the role, adding she had so many fond memories of St Gregory’s which had always held a special place in her heart.
“My former role within the academy meant I already had a good knowledge of the school and its processes, and I already knew all of the staff.
“Starting as head of school during the third lockdown has been challenging, but the whole team were very well-prepared.
“It’s also meant I’ve been able to explore positive changes that can be made within the school, such as re-designing some areas to create an inspiring learning space and give the children somewhere that they can be even more proud of.
“The children are at the heart of everything we do, and I hope to make their time at the school as memorable as possible.”
Megan is being supported by the school’s executive principal Paul Madia who said it was fantastic to welcome Megan.
“She has a significant amount of experience in both staff and curriculum development as well as in teaching.
“She is very enthusiastic about delivering a well-rounded education in an environment where children can foster a passion for learning, develop high aspirations and make memories. I wish her every success in the position.”
