Goodbye to Mrs Cumming, au revoir to Mrs Lucas and welcome back Mrs Noordervliet!
Half term marks the end of the road at JSD for Mrs Cumming who has been a Teaching Assistant here since JSD opened, working in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. She will be joining her family (and cat!) in Belgium to begin a new chapter in her life. We will all miss her and wish her well. We are delighted to welcome back Julia Armstrong who will be working with us on a temporary basis as Teaching Assistant in the Emerald class.
We also say au revoir to Mrs Lucas who has been working in the Amethyst class since September (whilst Mrs Noordervliet was having her baby) and has worked at both JSD and JSV for the past 10 years in a variety of roles, including an SEN teaching assistant and a class assistant. We hope she may pop back from time to time to visit....!
And of course we welcome back Mrs Noordervliet from her maternity leave.
On Tuesday 4th March, the school photographer will be coming into school. The children in F2 should come to school in their school uniform ready for the photograph to be taken. After our photos are taken the children will change for their PE lesson.
