A 36 year teaching career has come to an end as Jayne Williams retires from the headship at Friday Bridge Primary School.

“Making the decision to retire was easy; I always knew that leaving Friday Bridge wouldn’t be as it is such a great place to work … and learn,” she said.

She has been head of the village school since January 1998.

“Positive relationships permeate our school; the caring and friendly atmosphere is self-evident,” she said.

“All members of the school community are valued and supported; they treat each other with dignity and respect.
