The new headteacher at Flambourgh CE Primary School says she is eager to step up to the challenge.
Maxine Blackburn, 46, was made permanent headteacher in January, succeeding acting head Dawn Wardell, who continues to teach at the school.
Mrs Blackburn has lived in Bridlington for the past 12 years and was assistant headteacher at Burlington Juniors last year.
Mrs Blackburn, who began her teaching career in London, said: “I’m really excited about taking up this position at a really well run community school which offers lots of opportunities to children.
“I would like to build on the great range of extra-curricular activities we offer at the school and we’re really pleased that we have been able to hold sessions building bike skills and football training recently.
“Since joining Flamborough I have been pleasantly surprised by the varied learning and sporting experiences that the children are able to take part in.
“The children are enthusiastic learners and the school has a great family feel to it.
“I would like to build on these foundations and aim to continue to strengthen the link between school, the church and community.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far and all the staff are so committed and hard working.
“I want to see happy staff and children working to the best of their ability.
“In our last Ofsted we achieved a ‘good’, and although the criteria has changed in recent years I hope to be able to maintain this and take the school forward.”
Mrs Blackburn is the first permanent headteacher at Flamborough Primary since Donna Tandy left the role in 2012 to become head at Quay Primary School.
The school has 106 pupils and an active a Home School Association, The Friends of Flamborough School, who are always looking at ways that they can support school through various fundraising events.
