After 25 years at Raleigh Infant Academy in Thetford a treasured teaching assistant has retired.
Sue Hall started at the school as a volunteer mother, who listened to children reading and helped with artwork.
She was offered a job at the school and gained the qualifications needed to become a teaching assistant.
Speaking fondly about the pupils she has helped Mrs Hall said: “I have lasting memories of children singing in nativity plays, which always brings a lump to my throat and the end of year assemblies, seeing children moving on, are also emotional.
“It is lovely to see these children again years later when they bring their own children to Raleigh.”

Mrs Hall has been described by school staff as a “calm, caring influence on the children”.
