Bradfields Academy

Principal - Extended Sick Leave

3 May 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to inform you that I am going to be taking a period of extended sick leave from the 12th May.

I have been very unwell since the beginning of the Covid-19 period. I have already undergone radioactive iodine treatment, but unfortunately it was not successful. I have since been waiting to have a major surgical operation. I was hoping that this operation would have been possible during the Easter break, however, understandably the NHS was not able to accommodate this. I will be needing a significant period of time to recover but hope to return to the academy at the beginning of next term.

Mr Waters, Vice Principal, will be Acting Principal in my absence and will be in charge of the day to day running of Bradfields Academy. We have worked together as a team for the past 11 years, so I am highly confident that Bradfields Academy will be left in safe hands.

Whilst I may not be physically in the academy, I will still be in contact as much as possible with the academy and will be speaking with senior leaders on a regular basis. I am devastated that I will be absent from the academy and that I will miss many key moments and celebrations with the children, but I am hopeful for a swift recovery so that I can be back with you all as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely

Miss M Sweetlove

Principal
