Arc School Old Arley have waved goodbye to headteacher Vicky, who moves on after a very successful four years leading the school to take up the post of Regional Director within the Kedleston Group.
In an emotional farewell assembly on Tuesday, Vicky was presented with many gifts from staff and pupils. These included a toy dog in full Arc School uniform, in recognition of her having brought Emotional Support dogs (and hamsters, lizard, snails and stick insects) into the school, which all play such a vital role in school life.
We wish Vicky the very best of luck in her new role, and will miss her (and her dogs, Rixie and Bess!) enormously.
Vicky leaves the school in the safe hands of Emma Gillin, who joins us as Headteacher in September.
