The headteacher of Law Primary School has announced that she will be leaving the post this summer.

Jill Wareham emailed parents and carers at the North Berwick School this morning to tell them of her pending departure.

She said: "I am writing to inform you of my plans to retire from my post as headteacher of Law Primary at the end of the current academic session in June.

"I have informed Fiona Robertson, head of education [at East Lothian Council], and she will take steps to recruit my successor in due course."

And she added: "It has been a privilege to lead the team at Law for the last seven years. It would be difficult to find a more committed, enthusiastic and caring staff team to be teaching and looking after your children."

Mrs Wareham then wished all parents and carers "an enjoyable Easter holiday".
