Headteacher of Ramnoth and Nene schools and executive principal of the Elliot Foundation, Karen Crawley, said the awards presented to the dinner ladies last week is one of many good news stories at the school as staff work together with the community.

Lynne Ward and Sarah Taylor were recently awarded by Cambridgeshire County Council for being school catering team of the year.

Mrs Crawley said: “They work incredibly hard and do a phenomenal job which is great to see they have been recognised for it.

“It is one of many positive things that have happened in the last year since we became a foundation.
