I heard the terribly sad news about the death of our colleague Deborah Wood this morning...

Deborah was headteacher at Middleton St Mary's CE Primary School having worked previously at Ninelands Primary School here in Leeds and in Barnsley, Doncaster and Wakefield where she worked as a Primary Consultant. She was a talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful woman who brought a real magic to St Mary's in the short time she was with us.

Deborah's passion, commitment, focus and energy were wonderful and she was much loved by her colleagues, her children, her parents and carers and by other headteachers and colleagues in Education Leeds. We were blessed to have her as a colleague.

Our thoughts are with her partner at this very sad time.
