St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School in Elland appointed a new headteacher.

Linda Brown, 54, who taught at St Joseph’s in Brighouse earlier in her career, has taken up the role which is her first as a head teacher.

“I’m looking forward with enthusiasm to working with all the staff at St Patrick’s to meet our challenges and move the school forward,” she said.

“Everybody has made me feel really welcome and I’m enjoying being part of the family of St Patrick’s school,” she added.
