Garden party place for head

A FORMER Harrogate headteacher has attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Janet Davis, who retired in December 2009 after 24 years at Oatlands Infant School, was invited to the party, hosted by the Queen and Prince Philip, in recognition of her services to children and education.

The school gained four “outstanding” Ofsted reports and the final report before her retirement said: “The clear vision and drive of the headteacher successfully encourages senior staff to work tirelessly to ensure that pupils achieve as well as they can.”
