    So sad to hear this news. Len was a truly inspirational headteacher and I attempted to model my own teaching career on his example of love and compassion for children and in holding the child at the centre of the educational experience. My sincere condolences to all his family on the loss of such a wonderful man. Glenys Lofthouse
