We are delighted to announce that Mr Hines, the headteacher of Perryfields Primary Pupil Referral Unit, has been awarded an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to education.
Since Mr Hines took over as headteacher ten years ago Perryfields has been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and has also been chosen to serve as a lead school in the Department for Education’s National Behaviour Hubs Programme. As such, Mr Hines, Ms Vaughan and the Perryfields staff have provided support to schools across the country in a bid to improve their behaviour culture.
Mr Hines wants to say the following:
‘I am humbled and honoured to be receiving this award and would like to thank the incredible team of people who have been part of the Perryfields success story over the last 20 years.
I am proud of the hard work, dedication and determination of all of the pupils, staff and governors past and present and very grateful to Worcestershire Children First for their support.
Nothing I have achieved can or has been done in isolation, so I accept the award on behalf of us all.’
