A WHARFEDALE head teacher has been hailed as “an inspiration” by a national leader of education.

Dame Alison Peacock in a Times Educational Supplement article named Sally Fox, the head teacher of Pool-in-Wharfedale C of E Primary School, as one of the standout colleagues she has worked with during the last few years.

She writes: “Sally embodies everything I believe about making school an irresistible place to learn, and she is now head teacher of Pool C of E Primary School.

“They are lucky children.”

The school recently celebrated an improved Ofsted rating.
