I am writing to inform you that Mrs Irvin has decided that it is time to retire from Bullion Lane Primary School at the end of this term.
I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with Mrs Irvin for the past 9 years. During this time, she has always been a true professional. She is an outstanding teacher, whose commitment and dedication has ensured that all children in her care have left her class making exceptional progress, reaching their potential and ready for the next stage of education.
Her knowledge and ability to teach are exemplary. The lessons she teaches are motivating and inspiring, engaging all children so that they want to succeed.
I would like to express my sincere thanks for her teamwork, reliability, support and humour as a valuable member of our team, she will be missed.
It is such a shame that these unfortunate circumstances have meant that after 18 years at Bullion Lane, Mrs Irvin has been unable to enjoy her last term here with all children and staff in school.
However, I hope you will join me in wishing her a very long, happy and rewarding retirement for many years ahead.
Sarah Barningham (Head Teacher)
