Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 22nd November 2019

22 November 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to all the parents who recently put themselves forward for the role of parent governor. I am pleased to inform you that Mrs Heady has been duly elected.

As many of you are aware, primary schools in Gateshead have a close and supportive relationship that sometimes means they step in to offer help and support to each other. With that in mind, Mrs Lee will be absent from Kells Lane on a leadership secondment as acting deputy headteacher at White Mere Primary School in Gateshead.  The secondment begins next week and will continue until Christmas. Miss Nagle, our former deputy head, will teach Juniper class while Mrs Lee is away. Miss Bailie will be our acting SENCo (for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities) in Mrs Lee’s absence.

Have a great weekend.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
