May I take this opportunity to welcome our new members of staff to the school.
We have been joined by:
Laura Kempson, who will be teaching in Year 6,
Bethany Anderson, who will be working as a Teaching Assistant in Maple Class,
Nicola Roberts, who will be teaching in Year 2 to provide continuity in the absence of Mr Read or Mr Cascarini when they have their PPA and Leadership time out of class,
Sharon Andrews-Morelli, who will be working as a Teaching Assistant in Sycamore Class,
Liz McGovern, who will be working as a Teaching Assistant in Birch Class, and
Pamela Chalker, who will be working as a Teaching Assistant in Aspen Class.
I wish them every success as they settle in and become familiar with the school.
Congratulations also to Miss Norris who has officially taken up the position of Acting Deputy Headteacher.
Sadly, we must say goodbye to Mrs Rachel Mills next Friday. For the past year, Mrs Mills has been studying full time at the University of Winchester for a Degree in Social Work, while also working as the Senior Admin Assistant in reception. Mrs Mills has been an invaluable member of staff, who has worked tirelessly to ensure the smooth running of the office. Unfortunately, the demands of her new timetable have forced her to make the difficult decision to leave Stanmore and focus all her energy on her work placements. Mrs Mills will be missed by all the staff and children, and we wish her all the best in her new career.
