Happy Retirement Mrs Bell & Thank You for 44 Years of Teaching!

Happy Retirement Mrs Bell & Thank You for 44 Years of Teaching!


It is hard to believe that today we will be saying a fond farewell to Mrs Bell, who will be retiring from teaching after dedicating 44 years to the school - what an amazing achievement!


Mrs Bell started her career at Chapel Field Infant school in 1978, then moved across to Chapel Field Primary in 1980 when the schools joined together, teaching Years 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6. When Olton Primary was launched in 2018, Mrs Bell was proud to be part of all three schools which have been on the site and it was fitting that Mrs Bell should have a classroom in the new block when it opened in November last year.


Mrs Bell is proud to have taught children, their parents and also some of our school staff during this time. She is a much loved and respected member of our school team and has also mentored and provided invaluable support to staff over the years.


Amongst her many achievements as an English teacher, a member of the Senior Leadership Team, Mrs Bell has also celebrated diversity through her EAL work and helped Chapel Fields Junior become the first school in the borough to achieve the Stonewall Champion Bronze award and contributed to a variety of sustainable school initiatives.


We are sure you will join us all in wishing Mrs Bell a very happy retirement and thank Mrs Bell for her dedication and commitment in teaching so many people in our community for the past 44 years! 


Best wishes,

Mr Chamberlain and the Team at Olton
