We are very sad to announce the passing away on Sunday of our very highly regarded colleague, Mr Jim Cleaver. Jim suffered a heart attack having spent the day at home with his family.

Jim has been the headteacher of Wells Hall Primary School in Great Cornard for the last three years, having had a long career in primary education including a previous headship in Bury St Edmunds.

Unity Schools Partnership, and all our member schools, of course want to see our children return to school - when it is safe to do so.
