Farewell Mr Pearson

Commemorative Story Chair

Today the whole school surprised Mr Pearson with a story chair to commemorate his time as headteacher of the school. The project led by teacher Mrs Fiona Beal was inspired by the children's memories of Mr Pearson-his stories about deers and hedgehogs; his passion for sport and even his ties!

Every child was invited to design a chair for Mr Pearson and these ideas were then taken by sculptor Tim Jones and used to create the final piece. Our PTA 'Buddies' were also part of the creative team and kindly funded the project. 

Mr Pearson said: "I really had no idea and the whole school came out for the unveiling, I felt very spoilt and blessed."

"I have been very fortunate throughout my time here. There has been great staff, really pragmatic leadership from the governors and a fantastic PTA."

We would all like to wish Mr Pearson a very happy retirement.
