Transition – key staff

Key staff

Ms Greenhalgh


My name is Miss Greenhalgh and I am the Headteacher at Millthorpe School. Many of you might have seen me at Open Evening.

I have worked at Millthorpe for four years and remember, like you, what it’s like to join a new school and I didn’t know anyone as I moved across from a school in Lancashire. But what I can tell you about Millthorpe is that you shouldn’t worry; it’s the friendliest school I’ve worked in with the best pastoral care team to help you settle in to your new secondary school. We know that it will be even more worrying than normal at the moment whilst there is a lot that we are unsure about in the country but we will do everything we can to make sure you feel safe, happy and like a Millthorpian as soon as you arrive.

I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and seeing you all at school soon.

Mr Baybutt

Assistant Headteacher for Pastoral Care

My name is Mr Baybutt and I am the Assistant Headteacher for Pastoral Care at Millthorpe.

I have worked at Millthorpe for 12 years and have been part of the Pastoral Team for 10 years. In those 10 years, Ms Simpson and I have been in charge of Year 6 transition and I have helped over 2,100 students to make the move to Millthorpe. I have lots of experience in this role and I will make sure that I do everything that I can to make your transition to Millthorpe as straightforward as possible. It is fair to say that it is a bit more difficult this year, due to everything that is happening at the moment, but I will do my very best.

I work with an amazing Pastoral Team and they will all work really hard to make sure that you settle in and that we look after you for the next five years.

Ms Simpson

Assistant Headteacher (Designated Safeguarding Lead, SENCO)

My name is Ms Simpson and I work in the Pastoral and Inclusion Teams to make sure that everyone who needs some kind of extra support has their needs met. Some students need help with spelling, writing, maths, making friends, keeping calm or anything else. We are all different!

I make sure, with Mr Baybutt and Miss Johnson, that we have enough information about you from you, your parents/carers and your teachers so that the step into Millthorpe is not too hard (or too easy!).

I’m looking forward to meeting you all soon.

Miss Johnson

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead

My name is Miss Johnson and I ave worked at Millthorpe for five years based in the Pastoral Team.

I don’t teach therefore I am available throughout the school day to support our students. I will be working alongside Mr Baybutt and Ms Simpson to make sure that your move into Year 7 goes as smoothly as possible, particularly during this difficult time.

We can’t wait for you to join our school and we will do everything we can to make sure that you are happy and settle quickly once you have arrived.
