Our Schools team has been in a state of transition since Kerry, our former Schools Team Leader, handed in her notice in October 2018, to left us in February 2019 to join another Christian organisation. From November to February we searched for someone to head up out team 35 hours per week, term-time only. However, no suitable applicants came forward. Therefore a decision was made to restructure our Schools team, appointing a team leader for 3 days per week, assisted by 2 part-time team members. Following a successful interview, Lloyd was appointed as our new Schools Team Leader in mid March.
Following the appointment of Lloyd, our team gained another team member in May. Helen has been appointed to work for us 19 hours per week, term-time only. Helen is the youth worker at Holland Road Baptist Church and brings a wealth of knowledge to the team, having been a teacher for many years. Nairne remains in the team and has been offered additional hours working in our Schools team from June. She will be developing our Relationship and Sex Education work within secondary schools.
Our Schools team vision for 2019 and into the future is to see a Christian presence in every school in Brighton and Hove and beyond. They want to achieve this by humbly serving schools, assisting them with what they need.
