A NEW headteacher has been busy getting to know parents.

Christine Clayton met parents over a cup of tea at Fleet Infant School last week.

Mrs Clayton has joined the Velmead Road school after four years as headteacher at a school in Old Windsor.

She lives in Hook and decided to move to a job closer to home to avoid having to travel on the M3 every day.

“This is a very friendly, happy and successful school,” said Mrs Clayton.

“I have been made to feel very welcome and I hope to be able to maintain the very positive relationships that exist between everybody in the school community.

“I am looking forward to working at the school.”
