A NEW management team at Bassingbourn Primary School is believed to be one of the youngest in the country.

Head teacher Jane Ward, 39, said: "We have a new young dynamic team which is dedicated to move the school forward."

Miss Ward was previously the deputy head of the school for three years before becoming head teacher last September.

Rachel Schofield, 31, who was the Key Stage Two co-ordinator is now deputy head teacher and Paula Hnat, 33, is the new Key Stage Two co-ordinator.

The Key Stage One co-ordinator is Amanda Reid, 28.

"Our team is combining new ideas with adaptable thinking," said Miss Ward.

"We want to broaden the horizons for all who learn here and everybody is on a shared vision towards a common goal - to move the school forward.

"We are trying to continually improve teaching and learning as well as health and fitness with regards to physical education and healthy eating."

The school is also embarking on an eco-schools programme which encourages pupils to take responsibility for the future of their own environment.

One of the benefits of taking part in the programme is the improvements that are made to the school environment, both inside the school buildings and in the school grounds.

Miss Ward said: "We are looking to decorate inside the school and improve the playground markings."

Already pupils, teachers and the school council have worked together to achieve a bronze award and now they are striving to achieve the silver award.

"If you could bottle what we have in this school we would be millionaires," added Miss Ward.
