26th November 2021
As you will be aware from my previous communications with you Mrs. Walker (RMW) is currently not in work. She has had a close family bereavement. I am sure you will join me in passing on our sincere condolences to her and her family at this difficult time.
We have been very fortunate to have secured the commitment from the supply teacher, Mrs. Russell who is an experience early years practitioner, to cover whilst Mrs. Walker is absent.
The good news is that Mrs. McCaw will be returning from her maternity leave on Monday 6th December. She will be teaching your children in reception. Prior to her taking time off to have her little girl Poppy, Mrs. McCaw job shared with Mrs. Walker in reception class so has bags of experience. Mrs. McCaw will teach on Monday and Tuesday each week and Mrs. Walker will teach on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday ( when she returns) As previously stated Mrs. Russell will cover until this time. We are excited to have Mrs. McCaw return as she is an experienced, kind and talented member of our team.
We appreciate we have been unable to arrange your parent consultations at this time but will strive to do this as soon as we can. Mrs. Russell is quickly getting to know your children extremely well and has kindly offered to conduct the consultations if necessary. Our plan is to be able to give you an update on how your child has progressed before Christmas.
