West Hill Primary School pupils planned a fitting send-off for their music-loving headteacher, who says her proudest legacy is the children and their ‘magical enthusiasm’.

Sue Nield retires this term after 15 years and has spoken of how the school will always have a ‘special place in her heart’.

Music has played an important role throughout her teaching career, so it was apt that talented children and staff put on their end-of-year show Something to Value in honour of the much-loved headteacher.

Mrs Nield issued a ‘big thank you’ to all for their hard work and dedication.

She said: “It has been a great honour and privilege to have led this lovely school and I am very proud of what we have achieved as a school community. I am most proud of all the children, their magical enthusiasm and all their amazing and inspirational achievements in all areas of learning.

“The school will always hold a special place in my heart and I wish all the children, staff, governors and parents continued success and happiness for the future.”
