The award for Tracey Thornton is richly deserved. As a Governor at the school I can see first-hand everything the teaching body is doing to raise aspiration and give the children a stunning education. Maldon Primary School has energy, drive and direction. Achievement is high on the agenda!

I can only assume, having read your comment, that your teachers were constantly on strike.
