Staff Changes for 2013


Dear Parents


I am writing to inform you of the changes to staffing at school after February half term.


Mrs Johnston will return to Wylam after the half term holiday. She will be in school on Mondays, Tuesday and Fridays and will be fulfilling her role as head teacher. Mrs Johnston will be acting head at Corbridge on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I will be Acting Head when she is at Corbridge. I fully anticipate that we will be able to offer seamless provision for children, staff and parents.


I will be returning to my Year 3 class and teach them on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Mrs Channon will teach Year 3 on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Channon and myself have enjoyed working closely together over the past few months and are both looking forward to sharing the class for the remainder of their time in Year 3.


Mrs Hamilton will continue to teach Year 2 on Fridays. Mrs Viv Smith will be teaching nursery every Friday morning. The nursery children already know Mrs Smith as she has been providing cover for Mrs Hamilton when she has her PPA time.


These changes will remain in place until the summer holidays. In September Mrs Johnston will return to being full-time head teacher.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the governors for enabling Mrs Johnston to support Corbridge during their difficult time. She has played an invaluable role there. I would also like to thank everyone for the support they have given me during my time as Acting Head – governors, staff and parents have made this an extremely rewarding experience.


If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact me.


Have a happy half term.


Becky Kroese
