Confident seven-year-old Katie Carter told her teacher one day she would take her job after she retired.
Now, 16 years later, she has done just that at Tickenham Primary School, taking the place of Jacquie Townsend who has left after 20 years’ service.
Katie has now achieved her childhood ambition by becoming a teacher at the same school where she was a pupil.
She said: “I remember telling my teacher one day I would have her job, it is amazing I am now here.
“It is a tremendous little school, I could not be happier as a pupil and now as a teacher.”
