A ‘caring’ and ‘excellent’ head teacher who helped transform a primary school has been presented with a Guardian Rose.
Angela Huthart, departing head teacher at Langold Dyscarr Community School, is moving to a new school in September.
To mark her eight years teaching youngsters at Langold, she was given a Guardian Rose - from Walkers House of Flowers in the Priory Shopping Centre - to show that all her efforts did not go unnoticed.
Staff and governors jointly said: “We are going to miss her but we wish her lots of luck in her new school.
“We are extremely fortunate to have had Mrs Huthart as our head teacher for eight years. She is an excellent role model to both pupils and staff alike.”
Mrs Huthart is said to have played a pivotal role in turning the school into one of the most improved in the country in 2010. As a result, she was invited to Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister.
“During her time at the school, Mrs Huthart has transformed our school,” the governors said. Not only in its appearance but also with fantastic SATs results and achievements that we celebrate each year.
“She is a head teacher who will be remembered for creating an environment where everyone respects each other and feels respected in return.”
