Staffing Update

We are very sad to be saying good-bye to Mrs Scott as she moves to take up the acting Head Teacher post at Clovenstone Primary.  Mrs Scott’s last day will be this Friday, 2nd February.  We wish Mrs Scott all the very best in her new job.

We are happy to share with you that Mrs Jack, currently acting Principal Teacher, will be our acting Depute Head Teacher whilst Mrs Scott is on her secondment.

We are also delighted to let everyone know that both Mrs Short, Physical Education teacher, and Mrs Mackay, music teacher, are both expecting their second babies very soon.  Both teachers are planning to work until the end of February before starting their maternity leave.


Keeping with the theme of ‘new additions’, we are delighted to let everyone know that Ms Bouwer is expecting her first baby in April.  Ms Bouwer is planning to work until the Easter holidays before beginning her maternity leave.
