We do not have a committee our Governors meet at as a Full Governing Body.

Leadership changes for Overdale 2018 2019

Shared Headship

From September, and with the approval of the board of governors, Mrs Vicki Logan, will share the role of Headteacher at Overdale school with Mrs Carrie Stabler.  As Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Stabler has worked with passion and enthusiasm to drive improvements at Overdale, hence we look forward to and appreciate her continued support moving into the Headteacher role.  

Assistant Headteacher

We are pleased to welcome Mr Andrew Watson to the Overdale’s leadership team to support the changes in the leadership structure in September.  Mr Watson will lead KS2 teaching and learning as his key responsibility.  

Executive Headship

The above changes will enable Mrs Logan to take the role of Executive Headteacher at Braeburn.  Mrs Logan will lead the Ebor school improvement team for the school year 2018-2019.

After this half-term, Mrs Logan will be in both schools regularly, preparing for a smooth transition to Executive Headship supporting Braeburn school in their transition to becoming an academy.
