DEPUTY headteacher Jenny Harper has retired after 28 years at the school, leaving a parting gift of two new benches for the playground.
Mrs Harper began as a class teacher before becoming key stage two leader and later deputy head.
She was also responsible for many school events, including visits to the Isle of Wight and year six trips to London.
Staff and children presented her with gifts at a special assembly. A school spokesman said: “Mrs Harper always put children’s welfare first and in the classroom she had huge respect from the children.
“She donated two story benches to the school which now take pride of place in the playground and are in daily use by the children who love to sit on them and talk or read. We wish her a long and happy retirement spending time with her family.”
