Partnership Arrangement with Caldicot School, MonmouthshireDear Parents/carers,
Re: Partnership Arrangement with Caldicot School, Monmouthshire
I write to inform you that the full governing body recently met to consider a request from Monmouthshire County Council and the Education Achievement Service (EAS) to develop a strategic relationship with Caldicot School. Caldicot is a very similar school to ours in terms of its profile and size. However, the school has been without a substantive headteacher for some time and the governors are looking to explore alternative models of school leadership.
Governors were invited to consider the partnership arrangement, which seeks to provide stability and a renewed impetus to the improvement journey at Caldicot. During the meeting, governors fully considered the implications of the proposal and the potential impact for our own school. Following lengthy discussions, I can confirm the governors have unanimously approved the partnership, which will begin in June 2019.
Governors have agreed to the request that Mr Belli provides strategic leadership for both schools as Executive Headteacher. In the first instance, we anticipate he will spend three days per week at Caldicot and the remaining two days at The Bishop of Llandaff. In recognition of this increased role and to support
Mr Belli fully, governors have agreed to make changes to the leadership structure of our school. Miss Parry will become Head of School. This means that she will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership of
The Bishop of Llandaff. One of the current Assistant Heads will then step into Miss Parry’s role as Deputy Head. This appointment will be made this week and we will notify you once the process has been completed. These changes will remain for the duration of the time Mr Belli takes responsibility for both schools.
As Executive Headteacher, Mr Belli will actively be involved in sustaining ‘excellence’ at our school at a strategic level. He will continue to work closely with the Head of School, other leaders and all staff to ensure our students continue to receive the best possible education.
As you know, over the past five years we have been active in providing support to other schools across Wales. Therefore, we have every confidence in our leaders to undertake this work effectively and without detriment to the overall quality of education provided to our students.
I am sure you will wish Mr Belli and the leadership team every success in this new venture.
Reverend Canon Mark Preece
Chair of Governors

The results achieved by students today and the stunning A level results last week finish off a very successful year for the school, following our positive inspection visit in the spring. As ever, I also wish to reaffirm my sincere gratitude and heartfelt praise to the amazing teaching and support staff at school who have helped our students achieve such wonderful outcomes. They deserve a great deal of credit for the continued success at the school and have worked tirelessly to support the students to achieve so well”.
