From student to teacher

Monday 03 May 2021

We broke the news to you last week that Mr Owen is leaving Moortown Primary at the end of the summer term. We had a lot of people applying for the vacancy and last Wednesday, we invited 11 candidates to teach in the hall (and complete a couple of other tasks)  and then we invited the strongest teachers back on Thursday for an interview – a rigorous recruitment process!

We’re delighted to share the news that Miss Needham has been offered the post from September. Miss Needham joined us in September 2018 and was a teaching assistant for two years. During the last year, she has been a School Direct student and has been teaching alongside Mr Parker in Year 2. We’ve not confirmed which class Miss Needham will be teaching but in the meantime, we’d like to say ‘Congratulations’!
