He is comfortable feeding the chickens that are on site and breeding the birds that the children delight in watching. But alongside the gentleman farmer image, there is a man who cares passionately about the sort of education that is right for young children. The children are learning from doing – and a lot of the doing goes on outside. Jim Turner‘s first headship was in Sunderland and the children tell us that the trials and tribulations of the football team there are a running theme at assembly time. He has been at King’s Hawford for 10 years and to say it is just a place of work for him would be travesty – he lives and breathes the...
