Jo Raybould, headteacher at Bridgtown Primary School in Cannock, is taking early retirement after 33 years of teaching.

She spent 11 of those years as headteacher of the school in North Street.

Jo said: "I have many memories from my time at Bridgtown and have worked with a great team.

"Memories such as family camping on the field, community scarecrow festival, gotta dance, residential visits to name a few.

"I will miss the children the most and I am sure I will visit them at different times of the year.

"Due to Covid 19 restrictions we are having to wait for my big send off until the autumn term when we hope to have past and present staff and governors to some sort of celebration.

"The governors have invited me to an outdoor afternoon tea before the end of this term as a smaller celebration.

"Thank you to all staff, governors, children and parents for all their support over the years. I wish Bridgtown continuous success in the future."
