Welcome to Mr Donaldson
Earlier last week I informed parents that Mrs Whitney is to move on as of September and that I would be announcing the outcome of the process to recruit her replacement.
I am delighted to reveal that following a rigorous two day selection process we have decided that a Mr Donaldson will be joining the Ashgate teaching staff as of September (selected from 18 applicants). He will join Mrs Morris and Miss Hilton teaching the year 5 and 6 children.
We are fortunate to have secured Mr Donaldson’s position at our school. He is a teacher who has an extensive range of quality first teaching skills as well as a specialism in supporting those with inclusion needs. I am sure you will all make him welcome on his first day in September.
I am aware that the office are currently fielding calls from parents asking who the class teacher will be for their child in the coming year. As we have done for the last 6 years, this information will be shared with parents in the annual reports which are scheduled to be sent out to parents tomorrow.
