First published in News

Pupils gave their headteacher an emotional send-off when he retired after 27 years in his job.

But although David Iles has left Richard de Clare Primary School in Halstead, he will continue working with other schools across the county.

Mr Iles, who lives in Halstead with wife Sue, will be working with the Family and School Together team (FAST), which includes Ramsey College, Hedingham School, Honywood Community Science School and 19 primaries.

He will also manage the family services team, which he helped set up 20 years ago.

Mr Iles was an inspirational, wonderful Headteacher. He will be missed by children and parents alike. The children of Richard de Clare school have always been taught to be kind and respectful, and are well-educated. We'll all miss you!!

I agree fully with the above. I'm in my 20s now, and it's a testament to David's greatness that I look back on R de C with nothing but fond memories of him, and the school as a whole. I wish him only the very best of luck.
