All change at Mundesley First School

It's all change at Mundesley First School, which will reopen in September with a new name, a new uniform and a new headteacher.

Long-serving head Jeanette Thompson is leaving after 15 years, with Isabel Stubbs taking the reins as acting head.

And the new head will be in charge of a new school, with Mundesley First becoming Mundesley Infant School.

Last week, Mrs Thompson was given a send-off by parents, pupils and teachers at an end-of-school-year picnic.

A spokesman for the school said Mrs Thompson had been an 'inspiration' during her time leading the school and added: 'It is not only the pupils in her school who have benefited from her driving commitment and hard work to raise standards, she has been a great mentor to staff and parents, encouraging all to develop their personal skills and talents.

'Everyone involved with Mundesley First School wants to thank her for her amazing energy and vision.'

In September, the children will be wearing a new purple uniform with a yellow motif. The uniform is replacing the current blue and red one.

The school, which will go from ages four to eight to ages four to seven, is one of the last in the county to change its age range to tie in with education key stages.

The neighbouring Mundesley Junior School will keep its name, but will go from being age eight to 11 to seven to 11.

The new infant school will see its numbers drop from approximately 130 to nearer 100 pupils.
