Hadfield Nursery School's brilliant tribute to long-serving teacher

Hadfield Nursery School has named its entrance after a long-serving teacher who is retiring at the end of the current term.

Sue Perry joined the Queen Street nursery school in 1989 and has been there ever since. 

Now it has created the “Sue Perry Entrance” in her honour.

Headteacher Ken Weed said: "We wanted to do something special to commemorate Sue's time at Hadfield Nursery School and we could think of no better way than naming the entrance after her to demonstrate her 32 year legacy at Hadfield Nursery.

"Sue has welcomed thousands of children through that entrance and it is a fitting tribute that future generations of children will also be able to feel the legacy of her work.

“Sue is unique. While I have only known her for three months I can see first hand the impact that she has made on not only Hadfield Nursery School but also the community of Hadfield. Her dedication, her passion, her commitment to getting things right for children and families is second to none.

"She remembers all of the children she has taught by name and now many of those ex-pupils are parents themselves who bring their own children to the nursery to be taught by Sue Perry. She will be sorely missed by everyone.”

Sue is being praised for her dedication.

Ken added: "Even though she is going to leaving us soon and she has worked here for 32 years, her commitment and dedication is the same as it has always been. It is all of those little things she does, going above and beyond to make children's education special that are going to be missed the most.”

There have already been some celebrations to mark Sue’s retirement and Ken says there may be more.

“Sue is one of the reasons parents bring their children to Hadfield Nursery School. She has big shoes to fill. However, I am sure that Sue will not be a stranger. She will be popping in regularly and I am sure she will always be there if we need her!

"Life does go on and Hadfield Nursery School will continue to thrive but there will always be a special place in it for Sue.”
