Dear Parents, Carers and Children (Panda Class)
As you know, Mrs Sarah Day has been teaching Ms Purkiss’ Class this week. The children have had a wonderful time and having spoken to Mrs Day several times she has really enjoyed being with the Pandas this week!
I spoke to Ms Purkiss earlier in the week and she was hoping to return to work on Monday 7th November. Unfortunately I spoke to Ms Purkiss again on Thursday afternoon (yesterday) and it transpires that, at this moment in time, she is not well enough to return to work for at least another week.
Mrs Day, as our Infant cover teacher, will therefore continue to teach The Panda Class next week in Ms Purkiss’ absence. It is a pity that Ms Purkiss is not well enough to return to work, but we are extremely fortunate to have the capacity at Holy Trinity to keep classes learning and happy with excellent teachers who know the children well.
I will keep you updated, and although we look forward to Ms Purkiss’ return in the near future, I know that your children will continue to learn and enjoy their time with Mrs Day next week.
Jon Smith – Headteacher
