ELM Tree Middle School has a new headteacher determined to bring the school out of special measures.

Just two weeks ago, Peter Stiven resigned from the school in Ranworth Avenue, Lowestoft, amid claims he had taken the school as far as he could.

Yesterday, it was announced Jacqueline Frost had stepped into his shoes as acting head after being chosen by the interim executive broad, which is currently carrying out the job of the board of governors.

Ms Frost, currently working at Birchwood Primary School, in Ipswich, said: “This is the sort of new challenge I was looking for. I want to support the school and take it forward. My heart has always been in the classroom and I believe wholeheartedly in working with staff in school to make sure every child is given the best possible opportunities for learning.”

Ms Frost, who has been involved in teaching for more than 20 years, both in schools and working for the county in an advisory role, was also quizzed by the school's head boy and head girl before taking up the post.

Courtney Bloss and Aaron McMillan said they were looking forward to working with their new head teacher to help continue the improvement at the school.
