The Headteacher of an outstanding school in Hexthorpe has been visited by Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones, having announced her retirement.

Liz Ellison has been Head of Hexthorpe Primary School for 6 years, and leaves her role with the school still judged by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’.

Mayor Jones visited Hexthorpe Primary last week (1st July) to personally congratulate Liz on her fantastic career, which has seen hundreds of children and staff members benefit from her excellent leadership. The Mayor met pupils from the school and was given a tour of the grounds, as well as being able to speak to Mrs Ellison to give her thanks.

The Mayor said: ‘I would like to congratulate Liz on her many years of fantastic service to this school, and commend her for the positive changes she has overseen. The outstanding school we see today is testament to the hard work of Liz, and the whole school community, who have always been dedicated and passionate. We are very lucky to have had her working in Doncaster. I wish her all the best for the future.’

Liz Ellison said: ‘We were very pleased to welcome the Mayor into our school. Ros has always taken a keen interest in the inclusive climate of the school and it was fantastic for her to see at first-hand how we celebrate the cultural diversity of our community. All the children at our school are special and unique.

‘As I prepare to leave the school, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the staff, governors, parents of the school and members of the community who have worked tirelessly over the past 6 years of my headship to retain our ‘Outstanding’ status.’
