Last year, I told you about four new teachers starting. The teachers we recruited went through a very rigorous process and I’m delighted to say that the four – Mr Redfearn, Mr Wilks, Mr Owen and Miss Hazell – have all had a fantastic year at Moortown Primary School.
There will be only a few small changes to teaching staff next year:
- I’m sure you’ll all be delighted to hear the news that Mrs Taylor is expecting her second child. She will be leaving us, probably around Autumn half-term, but will return, hopefully for September 2012 (and some visits sooner, we hope!). Mrs Taylor’s role in school, as Health Leader, will not be replaced in her absence by a new teacher.
- Mr Redfearn and Miss Hewson swap year groups – having taught Year 4 for three years, Miss Hewson wants to widen her experience; it’s good for the school to move teachers, too, so that they bring fresh ideas to the new age groups.
Here is a list of who’s teaching which year group for 2011-12:
|Key Stage One||Year 1:||Mrs Weekes and Mrs Maver|
|Year 2:||Miss Hewson|
|Key Stage Two||Year 3:||Mr Wilks|
|Year 4:||Mr Redfearn|
|Year 5:||Mr Owen|
|Year 6:||Miss Hazell|
Later this term, your child will spend some time getting to know his or her new teacher, teaching assistants and classroom. In the meantime, if you’ve got any questions, comments or concerns, as always please contact me.
