A new headteacher is hoping to inspire pupils now he has taken over the reigns at a Backwell school.

Nick Webster has been made headteacher of the Federation of West Leigh Infant and Backwell Junior School after serving as deputy head for two years.

Nick took over from the previous headteacher Alex Bell, who left after more than eight years in the post.

He said: “I’m very excited about what we’ve got planned and the great team of staff I have.

“We want to inspire the children and focus on enriching their experience and making learning as much fun as possible.

“We had an inset day on the first day back and asked staff for quotes and messages to be displayed around both schools inspiring them to do their best and be the best person they can be.

“Alex Bell helped us to achieve an outstanding Ofsted and I want to build on the work he’s done and inspire the children in a variety of different ways.”
