Goodbye Miss Spilsbury!
We waved a very sad but very big Bosbury goodbye to Miss Spilsbury this week as she moves on to take up a brand new role after seven years of working in Class 1 at Bosbury School.
Hundreds of children have benefitted from Miss Spilsbury's care and nurturing nature while working alongside Mrs. Thompson in Class 1 over the years (her first Reception class have now nearly completed their first whole term at secondary school!), and she will be hugely missed in particular for her brilliant artistic skills - many a Key Stage 1 Nativity stable has been created by her creative talents!
Goodbye Miss Spilsbury from the whole Bosbury School community - we hope you are very happy in your new role and we look forward to seeing you pop in for a visit in the near future.
... and a big Bosbury hello and welcome to Miss Fisher who takes over from Miss Spilsbury as Teaching Assistant in Class 1. Miss Fisher made it through a rigorous interviewing process including some tough questioning from our formidable school council, and we are sure she will be extremely happy working at our lovely school. Miss Fisher will be running a brand new sports club after Christmas and we hope that as many girls in particular will attend as possible.
Welcome also to Mrs. Dark who is covering the absence of Mrs. Swain in Class 2. Mrs. Dark is a trained teacher and will be helping all of the children in the class with their learning.
On the subject of Class 2, many congratulations to Mrs. Wilesmith who is expecting her first child next year. She will be taking maternity leave around Easter time but will continue to teach Class 2 diligently up until then. Plans are already in place to ensure her period of absence is well covered.
Mr. Dunn continues to stay at home in order to care for his baby. We are hopeful for his return after Christmas but for the time-being, our brilliant supply teacher Mrs. Beatty is doing a great job of managing Class 4 with the support of both Mr. Ponter and Mr. Smith.
Many thanks to all of the staff at Bosbury who have been working extremely hard over recent weeks in order to cover a number of absences, and thank you also to parents and pupils for their patience and understanding during this tricky and challenging transitional time. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have concerns or worries during the busy build-up to Christmas.
