Headteacher celebrates school award before leaving

The end-of-term has proved one to remember for Knowl Hill CE Primary School.

It has been celebrating securing an Investors in People award and has held a talent show as well as saying goodbye to headteacher of four-and-a-half years Catherine Forrester.

The investors award recognises the work that has been carried out in ensuring pupils understand how the school in Bath Road works and know more about the role of staff and its governors.

Senior teacher Sonia Ludford said that they had been working hard to receive the award which they found out they had won last month.

"We are very pleased, It is a celebration of the work we have done with the children."

Pupils also hosted an end-of-term talent show earlier this month.

Songs, gymnastics and dance routines were some of the acts on show as children from reception through to year six were all involved in performing at the event which had been organised by the school council.

In a special assembly on Friday, pupils waved goodbye to headteacher Mrs Catherine Forrester.

After working at the school for four-and-a-half years she has decided to take up a new headteaching role in Sandhurst.

"I am leaving Knowl Hill in a strong position and I know that under its new leadership the school will go from strength to strength," she said.
