The new headteacher of Cockfield Primary says she will work to build on the school’s ‘strong community links and record of achievement’.
Trudie Harkin joins the school in her first headship after serving as a deputy head in Felixstowe.
She has been a teacher for nine years and has always worked in Suffolk - mainly small rural schools including Stutton and Hintlesham.
She said: “I’ve planned many exciting trips and themes for our learning over the coming year. It will be great to have the Year 5 and 6 children with us for the first time and to offer an exciting creative curriculum.”
