I was delighted to meet with Jane English, Principal of Paignton Community and Sports Academy this morning. I know that Jane is retiring next March and that she will be sorely missed.
Jane has made an enormous difference to the lives and education of children across Torbay and I am so pleased this was recognised when she was announced as a Silver Teaching Award Winner in the category of The Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Pearson Teaching Awards 2016. Jane was successfully chosen from thousands of nominations and her outstanding work is most certainly a huge factor in the wonderful Ofsted report that the school has recently received, where it now rates Good in all areas.
Many congratulations to all the staff and students on this success. You can view the new Ofsted report when the website is updated.
