Loddington's Tribute to Sue Walters
Sue Walters has been headteacher at Loddington since 2005 and from the first day it was obvious that she was someone who was very passionate about her school and even more passionate about the children in the school. During her tenure she has never excluded a pupil from school but has always worked with the child and their parents to deal with any behaviour that was causing concern. She has also never refused to accept a child in school because of their behaviour in a previous school or because they may have any special education needs
Two of her key attributes are her dedication and determination. In all the time she has worked at Loddington, she has not had one day off with sickness, she is often the first in school and the last to leave. She has always been determined to do everything in her power to ensure that the children have a good education and also receive a consistent experience at school. The large number of trips and visits the children experience is also testament to the wide ranging curriculum she sought to provide.
At her leaving service the children wrote the following:We will all really miss you, here are just a few words to describe you:Marvellous, respectful, splendid, wise, awesome, luxurious, tremendous, exquisite, random and super.
As staff and children we want to thank you for everything that you have done for each of us and also the school. You will be very much missed by everyone.
Her legacy will surely be the strong Christian Ethos of the school as described in the SIAMS report; ‘The headteacher’s strong Christian faith and her dedication and enthusiasm ensure that the Christian values of the school permeate all aspects of school life.”
