Year 6 Update


 5th November 2019



Dear Parents / Carers,



As you will have noticed, Dr Inglis has sadly not returned after the half term break. He continues to be unwell and although we still have no definite timeframe for his absence, at this stage, it does not look likely that he will be back with us before Christmas.


Mrs Huscroft will continue to be the main class teacher for Topaz class for as long as Dr Inglis is absent. She will teach the class Monday to Thursday. Mrs Brooks-Smith (one of the Ruby class teachers) has offered to take the class on the vast majority of Fridays to ensure consistency.


Miss Duggan has now returned to school fully recovered from her operation. Miss Duggan and Mrs Huscroft continue to work closely together to ensure consistency for both Year 6 classes.


The two teachers will also be holding parent consultations for the children in Year 6 next week. The meetings will take place on Wednesday 13 November and there will be appointments 8:50 – 9:30am or 2:10 – 5:30pm. The usual system for booking appointments through the school website will be set up today.


If it is impossible for you to attend an appointment on this day, please speak to your child’s class teacher or send them an email via and they will endeavour to find a suitable alternative.


I would like to thank you all for your patience and support during this difficult period.



Yours faithfully,





Mrs E. Birch

Head Teacher
