9th February 2018
As you are aware Miss McConville is now reaching the final stage of her pregnancy.
Our original plan was to appoint a Teacher to cover her Maternity Leave so that there could be a longer period of transition between Miss McConville and the newly appointed teacher Mr Robertson.
Mr Robertson is going to take up his post after half term on Monday 26th February. The children have already met him for a brief period of time when he delivered an exciting lesson and all the children were fully engrossed in their learning.
Mr Robertson will work alongside Miss McConville for a week so as to help him build up a relationship with the children so that there is a smooth transition. Mr Robertson will remain the class teacher until we break up for the summer holidays. Miss Fairclough will remain within the class, as will Mrs Harvey.
I am sure you will join me in wishing Miss McConville and her family all the very best and a very pleasurable time with her newborn baby.
We hope that Miss McConville will enjoy her time on maternity leave with her newborn whilst still making sure she makes some quality time for herself as well.
Mr M.D. Hallam
