Dear Parents and Carers,
As you will know, today we had Transition Day for the school with our infant feeder schools sending their children to meet their new Year 3 teachers and Years 3,4 and 5 moving up to meet their new teacher for next year. I am writing to let you know who your child(ren)’s teacher will be for next year (please see below).
We will also be welcoming some new staff to the school and saying goodbye to others. We will be saying goodbye to Mr Stacey who is relocating down to the Dorset coast. He has secured a post in a school down there and starts in September. We also say goodbye to Mr Parker who, after five years at St Lawrence, has decided to move on to another local school to broaden his experience. We wish them both well as they embark further on their career paths.
We will be welcoming back Miss East who many of you will remember took a sabbatical this year to travel around the world. Although she was unable to meet her class today she will be back and raring to go in September.
Your children have had a chance to meet their new teacher today (where possible) and spent some time getting to know them better. This also included some academic tasks to show their teacher what they are capable of.
Mr D Tucker
