A STANFORD-le-Hope headteacher has been awarded one of education’s top honours.

Arthur Bugler Primary School Headteacher John Bryant is one of just 76 Silver Award winners across the country.

Mr Bryant was honoured with a Silver Award in The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School for outstanding commitment to changing the lives of the children.

And he is now in the running for one of just 14 Gold Awards later in the year, in a programme which will be broadcast on the BBC.

Mr Bryant told Thurrock Nub News: “This is wonderful news for our fantastic school. The Arthur Bugler community is one of a kind and an incredible team have ensured that we provide an exceptional education for all children in a safe and happy environment.”
