The headteacher of Worlingham CEVC primary school will be leaving the school after taking early retirement,
Mrs Vicky O'Brien was the school's headteacher for the last eight years and had a 32 year teaching career.
She said: "It has been such a privelege to have been headteacher and I will certainly leave with many fond memories."
Last year Mrs O'Brien was proud to see the school receive its first outstanding Ofsted report.
The headteacher thanked governors and staff for putting faith and trust in her when she was appointed.
