Awarded to headteacher

Dr Lesley Curtis, headteacher at Everton Nursery School and Family Centre, made a very special visit recently – to collect her OBE from Buckingham Palace.

The Queen presented Lesley with her accolade alongside a host of other deserving men and women from across the UK.

Lesley was awarded an OBE for her services to education.

A national representative of the Teaching School Council, Lesley is a leading figure in the field of early years education, and development and continues to drive Everton Nursery School and Family Centre forward as it continues to achieve an outstanding judgment by Ofsted (this has been achieved consecutively since 2004).

Lesley said: “Of course, I feel incredibly privileged and honoured to be recognised in this way. It was an amazing experience and one that I will never forget.

“I am passionate about the development of our young children in early years and am keen to promote high quality in nursery schools and other early years providers, not only in Liverpool but across the UK.

“Everton Nursery School and Family Centre is the lead school within the North Liverpool Teaching School Partnership, working closely with primary schools, the local authority and HEIs, both locally and nationally”.
