new heads

Two village schools welcomed new headteachers at the start of the autumn term.

Mrs Fran Barnes (right) is now in charge at St Andrew’s First School in Barnt Green, having served as a deputy head in Smethwick.

“I’m familiar with Barnt Green as both my sons sailed at the Sailing Club,” she says.

“I’m excited about being part of a school in the centre of its community, and its core values resonate with my own beliefs.”

Mrs Sally Athey (far right) is head of Crown Meadow First School in Alvechurch, and was previously assistant head at Hagley Primary School.

“I feel privileged to have been chosen to build upon the school’s success and to help the children  develop a thirst for learning,” she says.
