I hope you're having a lovely day and are enjoying the sunshine.
I am writing to update you on some staffing changes that will soon come into effect:
Year 1 - as many of you know, Mrs Fortescue will be leaving us at the end of this half term to go on maternity leave. I am sure you will all join me in wishing her all the very best for her new arrival. The timing Mrs Fortescue's departure was almost perfect as Miss Ashurst is returning from maternity leave at the end of December. Miss Ashurst will teach Year 1 from the end of December until the end of the academic year. I know the children in Year 1 will be sad to see Mrs Fortescue leave but I am sure Miss Ashurst's imminent return will soften that blow.
Mrs Humphreys will remain in Year 1 throughout this time and will teach alongside a new colleague until Miss Ashurst's return.
Mrs McDonnell is leaving us at the end of this half term, after 14 years at Burford. Miss White is covering for Mrs McDonnell at the moment and will continue in this role for the time being.
Miss Spencer will remain teaching in nursery for the whole of this academic year and Miss Kendrick will remain in F2 for the same period.
I hope I have set out what is soon to happen clearly but please feel free to ask me any questions, should that not be the case.
