A NEWLY appointed headteacher is aiming to develop her school’s creative curriculum.

Bridget Burke, 48, has taken over at Rattlesden Primary School and wants to work with staff to further pupils’ creative experiences.

She said: “It’s about developing other facets to their personality so that the skills they have as individuals gives them the opportunity to shine within our learning environment.”

Mrs Burke has been a teacher for 26 years and this is her first time as school head.

Her last role was a senior teacher at Brooklands Primary, in Brantham.

She has taken over from Jane Ash, who is now headteacher at Elmswell Primary School.

Mrs Burke said: “I’m looking forward to working with the whole village community to maintain the very high quality of education which already exists within the school.

“I’m passionate about children’s learning and creating memorable childhood experiences within the school. I know that this is the start of a long and happy partnership.”

She added that the other heads in the area have been ‘tremendously supportive’
