I started the day early at Cobden Primary School...

I had been invited By Paula Head, headteacher, who wanted me to visit the school at the end of her second year as headteacher to see what the team have achieved. She also wanted me to meet Riccardo Paffetti who was paralysed from the waist down in a skiing accident last December. Riccardo is an inspirational young man who has achieved something quite remarkable and is back now teaching in his wheelchair and doing it brilliantly.

Cobden Primary School is very obviously a very good school brilliantly led by Paula, with some great teachers and support staff looking after some fantastic young people. Paula's enegy, passion, commitment, persistence and determination are achieving something wonderful and releasing real magic.
