Peckover Primary School pays tribute to Governor Peter Waterfield

Peckover Primary School has paid tribute to one of its Governors, Mr Peter Waterfield, who sadly died on Friday 3 April.

Principal Carrie Norman said: ‘Peter Waterfield was more than a governor to Peckover School; he was a friend to everyone at Peckover. Peter cared deeply about the pupils and staff who made up the team. Peter always championed the school and gave generously, supporting our performing arts and music, buying equipment and instruments so all pupils could take part and learn new musical skills. For him, nothing was too much trouble and every barrier had to be overcome; if it would help the children, then he just made it happen. Peter was a friend who made us laugh at Governor meetings; and joined in with all aspects of school life with a sense of fun and humour. Peter will be sadly missed, but we will ensure his legacy of music and performing will continue and we will always fondly remember him.’

Brooke Weston Trust CEO, Dr Andrew Campbell said: ‘On behalf of the board of BWT and of all staff across our family of schools, I wish to express deepest sympathies to Peter’s family.’

Mr Waterfield is pictured in costume at the school’s Titanic Tea Dance two years ago with his daughter, Helen Nicholls, who is also a Governor at the school, and Principal Carrie Norman.
