New year, new head teacher at Springfield

Saturday 27 October 2018

As Springfield's school pupils welcome in the New Year, they'll also be saying hello to a new head teacher.

Mal Robson, Deputy Head at D'Auvergne Primary School, will be taking up his new post in January.

Having qualified as a primary school teacher in 1999, Mr Robson began his teaching career in the north-west of England. He moved to Jersey in 2013 with his wife, who is also a teacher, and took up the role of deputy head teacher at d’Auvergne School.

He will take over from Sam Cooper who is now the Head Teacher of d’Auvergne School.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Robson said: “I am delighted and very proud to be confirmed as the new head teacher of Springfield School. This is a fantastic opportunity to continue the great work done by Mr Cooper and the staff at Springfield in providing the children with the very best learning opportunities. I was overwhelmed by the fantastic atmosphere and environment of the school when I visited and can’t wait to get started working with the children, parents and staff.”

Seán O’Regan, Group Director of Education, said that Mr Robson was the "unanimous choice" of the recruitment panel.

"I am confident that he will bring the dedication and commitment he has ably demonstrated as deputy head of another high-performing Jersey primary school to ensure that Springfield School continues to go from strength to strength," he said.

Senator Tracey Vallois, the Education Minister, commented: “I would like to congratulate Mr Robson on his new role and wish him well in his new position. It is another terrific school and I know that the whole school community at Springfield will give him their support. I would also like to thank the acting head teacher at Springfield School, Anthea Carroll, for all of her hard work and leadership since the previous head teacher Sam Cooper left to take up his new role as head teacher of d’Auvergne School.”
