We had to say a sad farewell to Mr Seagrove today, who has been head teacher at Mortimer Primary School for 18 years. He will be greatly missed by all.

We held a special whole school assembly this morning to wish him luck in his next chapter.

Here are a few pictures from the assembly and the children in classes this morning.

Many of our lovely parents held a collection for Mr Seagrove and this is the video of him being presented with the presents. He was ever so grateful to all who contributed and would like to say a huge thank you to all.

The children also sang one of Mr Seagrove favourite songs for him at the end of the assembly as a special surprise.
