Really excited this morning to find that in the Queen’s Birthday Honours there is an OBE for my good friend, Kathryn.
Kathryn Broadhurst has been headteacher at Green Lane Infant School, in inner-city Leicester, for 29 years - she retires this summer. In her multicultural school, where over 17 languages are spoken, Kathryn has displayed a real determination to promote inclusivity and overcome language barriers. The school has won many awards and consistently received stunning Ofsted results under her leadership. Staff, pupils and parents all love and respect Kathryn, and know how important her Christian faith is to her. Kathryn is a member of our church in Kirby Muxloe and we are all very proud of her and what she has achieved. She’ll probably just smile and tell us she has just got on with the job God has given her.
