Lee Moscato has been appointed as the new Diocesan Director of Education (DDE) in the Diocese of Truro.

Lee joined the diocese on secondment in September last year having previously worked as headteacher of King Charles C of E School in Falmouth.

Diocesan Secretary Simon Cade said: “We are delighted for Lee, for our church schools, and for the wider diocesan network. Lee brings his experience as school leader and headteacher and great work supporting other schools and school leaders. Lee has already made a significant contribution to the life of the diocese and our schools in the short time that he has held the interim role, it is great that he will now be able to carry that forward and see more great outcomes for children and for our churches.”
