My name is Tony Head and I have been a Principal of Portswood Primary School (which is part of Portswood Primary Academy Trust) since September 2016. However, I had the pleasure of working for Llyn Codling, who is the Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, at this school a decade ago and was delighted that I had the opportunity to begin working with her again. The support and guidance that comes from working across the Trust is invaluable and I love the feeling of ‘family’ across the partnership. Both the school and I personally have benefitted immensely from the depth and breadth of knowledge and support that is available across the Trust. It has given me the confidence to make informed decisions that I feel are right for the school; ones that have allowed us to continue to strive for excellence for all of our children.
