Mrs Bardsley has been headteacher of Sidlesham Primary School for six years.

The pupils showed their gratitude by performing at the farewell event.

Each class of children had a song to sing, all of which had been inspired by an inspirational talk given to them by Mrs Bardsley during her time at the school.

Presents were also presented, and governors said a few words.

Mrs Bardsley has been replaced by Mrs Kim Huggett, who is the interim headteacher until the new head starts at the school for September.
