On Wednesday, our school leadership (including our Chair of Governors) conducted interviews for a teacher to work with us for 2 days. Mrs Wicks has requested to change her working hours from 3 days to 1 day due to ill health. We have accepted her request and have subsequently advertised, interviewed and recruited a new teacher to join our team and work with our Year 3 children alongside Mrs Lock.
I am delighted to announce that Mrs Elizabeth Silby will be joining us in January. Mrs Silby has been working at Barrowby Church of England Primary School for the last 9 years and has taught all age ranges in Key Stage 2. Whilst at Barrowby, she has led literacy across the whole school and has been a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Having started her own family, Mrs Silby is interested in working for 2 days as a teacher. We look forward to her working with us all in January 2018 – she will visit us and spend time with us prior to her official start during the Christmas term.
