I wrote to the parents of Year 3 this week, to inform them that Mrs Grimshaw has secured a new teaching post at her local village school where she is also a School Governor. She will be leaving SSMJ on 18th April. Her final day at SSMJ will be Wednesday 13th April. We are pleased to tell you that we have appointed an experienced teacher as class teacher for Year 3, Mrs Anna Schofield. Mrs Schofield is coming from a primary school in Colne and brings with her a wealth of experience. Mrs Schofield will be coming to school on Monday 21st March to meet the children and have a handover day with Mrs Grimshaw to ensure the continuity of education for your children. Mrs Grimshaw is well loved by the children, staff and parents and has been a valued member of our SSMJ team and whilst we will be sad to see Mrs Grimshaw move on, and will miss her, we must also support our staff when new opportunities are presented to them. I am sure you will join us in wishing Mrs Grimshaw all the best in her new post.
