Head Teacher's Message



Dear Parents/Carers


It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you, as Acting Head Teacher of Coatbridge High School. As you know Mrs O’Neill announced her secondment with North Lanarkshire Council prior to Christmas and so on the 7th January, I officially joined Coatbridge High’s learning community in order to act as Head Teacher in Mrs O’Neill absence.


During the course of my first week I had the pleasure of meeting all staff members and, through individual year group assemblies, I introduced myself to every pupil within the school. During these assemblies the pupils made a remarkable first impression in terms of their conduct, standard of uniform and attitude and were a credit to the school and their families. I spoke with the pupils about our shared vision for the school and my expectations as Head Teacher regarding behaviour, uniform, time keeping and attendance. We also discussed engagement in extracurricular and out of hours events and reflected on our school motto, ‘dare to dream, aim to achieve’ with regards to attainment and achievement. I shared my plans with the pupils regarding working closely with the staff of Coatbridge High School in order to ensure that we continue to offer the best opportunities and experiences for each young person within our school. In order to build upon the strong school-home partnerships already in place, I ask that you also continue to support the school in each of these areas.


Over the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to meet with several parents/carers and I look forward to meeting each one of you and working with you in partnership in order to benefit our young pupil.


I’d like to thank the whole school community for the warm welcome I have received and I look forward to supporting the pupils, staff and parents over the coming months.




Kind Regards


Jennifer Di Mambro
