As the end of term fast approaches, preparations are underway in school to get ready for September.
We are pleased to let you know that we have secured replacements for Mr Mills and Miss Walker. We are holding interviews next week for the Early Years position that is currently being advertised, and so will hopefully be in a position to confirm details by the end of the month.
The class structure for 2017/2018 will be as follows:
- Nursery: Mrs Long and one new teacher
- Foundation 2 / Reception: Miss Eckersley and Mrs Flynn
- Year 1: Miss Parling
- Year 1/2: Mrs Latham (phase leader)
- Year 2: Miss Lowry and Mrs Wilkins
- Year 3/4: Mrs Allaway (phase leader)
- Year 3/4: Mrs McCormick
- Year 3/4: Mr Gathercole
- Year 5/6: Miss Barrott
- Year 5/6: Miss Bainbridge (phase leader)
- Year 5/6: Mr Lindsay
You may notice that Mrs Beesley (Head of Early Years across the federation) is not included in our structure above. Don’t worry though, she is not leaving us! We’ve arranged a swap with St James’ CE Primary School and Mrs Beesley will teach there alongside Mrs Ellison, her current class-share partner at Scholes. Coming over from St James’ we have Mrs Flynn who will work alongside Miss Eckersley in Reception. Mrs Flynn has been at St James’ for the past three years and is an outstanding Early Years specialist. She is keen to develop her experience in a larger setting, and we are delighted that she is joining us at Scholes.
We are also pleased to welcome Mr Gathercole to our school. Mr Gathercole is an enthusiastic newly qualified teacher and is looking forward to working with the children at Scholes. You may see him around over the next couple of weeks as he is joining us for a few days to meet the children and staff before September.
Class lists are currently being looked at. We will let you know whose class your child will be in once the final arrangements have been worked out. If you have any questions in the meantime, catch me at the gate before or after school.
Karen Hague, Acting Head of School
