PUPILS at a Suffolk school have said goodbye to their headteacher after eight years.

Mick Meadows is leaving Needham Market's Bosmere Primary School and will now begin work as head of school leadership and professional development at Suffolk County Council.

Acting headteacher Sarah Rees said he will be greatly missed by both pupils and staff.

"I've only been at the school for a year but during that time he has done a lot of work within the community and started a lot of initiatives," she said.

"He's a very enthusiastic and lively character who brought all of these qualities to the school. The children will miss him very much and I know the staff will too.

"But it's a very exciting opportunity for him because he's got a very good promotion."
