Back to school this morning. The 5.45 alarm wasn't pleasant (there should only be one 5 o'clock in the day and it certainly isn't that one!) but the rest of the day was filled with plenty of good news.
The Year 8 boy who was taken so ill with asthma just before Christmas, has made a great recovery and is now at home. We hope to see him back in school as the term progresses and he fully regains his health.
My lovely colleague has decided to accept the school's informal offer of my job from September. I am delighted because we have worked closely for years and I am confident that the pupils will be in excellent hands.
We have also found a way to make an early appointment to my colleague's role, starting from Easter. We will be over-staffed for a few weeks when she returns from Maternity Leave - but this will allow us time to do a quality 'hand over' towards the end of the year.
