Fountain Primary School has bid a fond farewell to its headteacher on Friday.

Mr Andrew Eastwood, who started at the school in 2009, received an emotional goodbye from pupils, staff and parents..

On his final day as headteacher, Mr Eastwood said: “It is with mixed emotions that I am leaving Fountain after six happy years.

“I have had the opportunity to work with some great staff, all of whom have shown their drive and determination to make Fountain fantastic!

“The parents have really got behind the school and supported all that we have done and the children have been a joy to teach. There is a real family atmosphere in the school which has enabled everybody at Fountain to feel a part of the success it has achieved.

“The people of Morley have always given me their backing and made me feel very welcome. Whilst I am excited at the prospect of starting my new job, I will miss the warmth and friendliness that has made Fountain so special to me and the smiles and cheeriness of all the children.”

Mr Eastwood is going on to his new role as Head of Learning Improvement for Leeds.

The new headteacher at Fountain Primary School is yet to be announced.
