We held a very special assembly on Thursday afternoon to say farewell to Mr Davidson, Mrs Stivens and Miss Akhrass who are all moving on to pastures new.
Mr Davidson began by giving his thanks and best wishes to Miss Akhrass who is moving on to a new school and then to Mrs Stivens who is retiring after nearly 30 years of phenomenal service to Belmont. She has worked with every Headteacher Belmont has ever had and her hard work and immense dedication to the school over the years is immeasurable. It is difficult to imagine Belmont without her!
Mr Allsopp then took over the assembly as children from each class shared some of their special memories of Mr Davidson and he was presented with a book full of messages from the school.
Governor Mr Horan spoke on behalf of us all as he thanked Mr Davidson for leading the school through two successful Ofsted inspections and of course the recent Coronavirus epidemic. His tireless and dedicated leadership through challenging times has been inspirational and he has made Team Belmont the great school it is. He will be greatly missed by us all.
Both Mr Davidson and Mrs Stivens were presented with a beautiful painting created by all of the children in the school amid much secrecy! We wish them all the very best for the future and hope they come back to see us soon.
