All change at Bawburgh School

At the end of term in December 2016, four long-standing members of staff will move on from the Bawburgh School. They are Mrs Staff, the Headteacher, Mrs Beverley, a teacher, Mrs Kirkendall, the school's Finance Officer and secretary and Mr Prior, the school's caretaker.

With a combined service of more than fifty years, the school is going to miss their experience. Mrs Staff has been Headteacher for eight years having worked at the school as a teacher before that. She leaves the school with a rating of 'Good', an increase in pupil numbers and a very happy welcoming place to learn.

The four agreed they would miss the people at the school, Mrs Kirkendall pointed out that "many have become friends. As a small school with not many staff, you don't realise how close you become to them, they feel like family." They each have very different plans for the future. Mrs Beverley intends to spend more time with her grandchildren and will also do some voluntary work on the North Norfolk Railway. Mr Prior is looking forward to exploring Norfolk and enjoying life. Mre Kirkendall is looking for another part-time job with hours which suit her better.

The new Headteacher is Carla Steadman, who worked previously at Tuckswood Primary School.

We would like to thank all the departing staff for their work with the children of Bawburgh and wish them all the best for the future.

Headteacher's leaving presents

At the school's Christmas performance, Mrs Staff, the outgoing Headteacher, was presented with a rose for her garden. The rose had been named by the school as the 'Bawburgh Rose'. Mrs Staff thanked everyone for her many gifts, cards and good wishes. As a leaving present to the school, Mrs Staff wanted to give something to the school for the benefit of the children. She said, "the children are very much enjoying the new adventure playground which has really enhanced the school outdoor provision. I would like to enhance this further, so I am gifting the children a 'living' farewell present - a willow dome and play tunnel. I hope to organise these over the holiday so the children can help to plant the willows."
