Deputy Head Dave Clark was described as the ‘heart and soul’ of Richmond School
Richmond School Deputy Head teacher Dave Clark was killed after being trampled by cows in Richmond, North Yorkshire.
North Yorkshire Police were called to a report a man in his 50s had been injured by cows in a field north of Richmond, at 7.30pm on Monday 21.
He was treated by paramedics but was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said officers from the local Neighbourhood Policing Team will be working to support those affected by his death.
Richmond School described Mr Clark as the ‘heart and soul’ of the school.
"He was an enormous character, a brilliant school leader and simply a lovely man who enriched the life of everyone he came into contact with, just by being himself and doing what he did every day."
Mr Clark had worked at the school since 1997, becoming deputy head in 2003.
"Our students and their parents have been lucky to have known and been helped by him. We have been privileged as a staff to have worked with him and will continue working in the same way in his memory.
"Above all, Dave was a family man. Our thoughts are with Dave’s wife, his children and wider family at this difficult time."
