Louise Baker Announces Intent to Continue Improvement at John Madejski Academy
As they reopened again earlier this month, Mrs Louise Baker officially joined John Madejski Academy as its new principal. The appointment was announced in July, and Mrs Baker has now joined JMA after a successful transition period.
In a letter sent to parents, Mrs Baker said “I believe that every student deserves a chance and access to an excellent education and opportunities.”
To achieve her vision, Mrs Baker discussed her goals for improvement, saying that: “teaching and learning expectations need to be first class, all the time, every day. A tucked in shirt with a top button done up means that person will approach their studies and work with the same precision. Learning should also be challenging and enjoyable.”
Having finally been able to finally meet everyone, she is impressed with how well the school community has adapted to the new situation.
She said: “It’s been great to see all the staff and children coming back to school so positively. Everyone has had to work really hard together to make sure we can safely return, and I’ve been really impressed with the togetherness and commitment of the whole school community. In the staff and pupils I see a fantastic school body full of potential and personality.”
Mrs Baker will initially be supported in her new role by our Vice Principal R Morgan and Assistant Principals — G Bale, Liz Green, and C Hudson.
The future at JMA looks bright under the leadership of Louise Baker. Everyone at The White Horse Federation is looking forward to working with Mrs Baker to continue the school’s progress.
