A message from the Head of School…
I can’t believe it is half term already! The children have worked incredibly hard this term and are ready for a well-deserved break. We hope you all have a lovely, relaxing holiday.
We have a few staff changes to make you aware of. Miss Scull is getting married this Saturday and will return as Mrs Eddon. We wish Miss Scull all the best and hope her and Mr Eddon have a special day. We will share a picture of the happy couple in the next newsletter.
Miss Whitaker has decided she is ready for a new challenge and has been offered a new job within the academy. Miss Whitaker would like all our families to know she has had an amazing journey at Haxby Road and has some very special memories. She is really excited about starting her new challenge. We would like to welcome the new Year 3 teacher Miss Siobhan Gordan after half term.
Please see the reverse of this newsletter and ensure you sign up for our new Parenthub app. The office will be using Parent hub to send you information.
