My colleague Jeremy Dunford, headteacher at Deighton Gates Primary School sent me this e-mail about the achievments of some of his colleagues...

"Hello Chris, Four years ago my `reception model` resulted in a member of the support staff taking on an associate teacher role. In that time she has studied for a Foundation Degree then Degree and engaged in the Registered Teacher programme. I am pleased to be able to say that she has just been awarded a First Class Honours Degree and will gain Qualified teacher Status at the same time. Her name is Mrs Anne Senior. Another of her colleagues has, at the same time, studied for a Foundation Degree. She has also been awarded a First Class Honours Degree and Degree and has been accepted on the Graduate Teacher Programme for September and will be doing this at Deighton Gates. Her name is Mrs Harriet Ovenden. Many of my support staff our now engaged in further/higher education and I consider them all to be a strength, amongst many, of the school. Jeremy"

We are fortunate to have so many talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues working here in Leeds and it is inspiring to hear about the achievements of colleagues like Anne and Harriet who have achieved so much working at Deighton Gates Primary School under Jeremy's leadership.
