New head to meet with Burngreave parents

Former Burngreave resident Linda Gooden has taken over as headteacher at King Edward VII School. Linda grew up on Catherine Street and attended Pye Bank School, Herries School, Sheffield City Polytechnilinda-gooden-publicity-photo-medium-size-largec and the University of Sheffield. Linda told the Messenger: “My love of learning has been my ‘passport to success’ and I always knew that I would become a headteacher.”


“Parents and families are the most important influences on young people and so I launched a Parental Engagement Partnership (PEP) for King Edward VII parents/carers. We want to encourage parents to become involved in the life of the school and as many of our students come from Burngreave we’ll be coming over for six half-termly headteacher’s drop in meetings during 2016 – 2017.”

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
