Appointment of Neil Winn as permanent principal of Murrayfield

31 October 2018

Dear parent/carer

Appointment of Neil Winn as permanent principal of Murrayfield

I am very pleased to announce that Neil Winn has been appointed as Murrayfield Primary’s permanent principal.

Neil became interim principal in June last year following the death of Amanda Phillips. He took on his new role quickly and effectively, helping the Murrayfield community get over the shock of Amanda’s loss. Since then, he has worked hard to improve the school’s teaching and results while delivering the excellent education that every pupil deserves.

The board of directors ran a full recruitment process to select the permanent principal for Murrayfield and, based on that process, Neil was their unanimous choice. We are confident that Murrayfield will continue to go from strength to strength under Neil’s leadership.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Neil on his appointment.

Yours faithfully

Bill Holledge

CEO, Paradigm Trust

Appointments are available for you to meet with your child’s teacher on Tuesday 17th July or Thursday 19th July 2018 15.30pm -17.30pm.

This is accessed from the link below:


Appointments with your child’s teacher will be for 10 minutes. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open.

In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • First name
  • Surname
  • Date of birth

You will also need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not inform us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem.

If you do not have access to the Internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with a member of the administration team.

Class teachers will meet with you on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning.

If possible, year 6 pupils should attend with their parent/carer.
