April 2013 Newsletter

Posted on 28th April 2013

WELCOME …
To the Summer term at Abbey Gates - you will see from the dates at the end of the newsletter that we have much to “pack in” and look forward to!

A FURTHER WELCOME…
To Mr Gareth Rich who will be joining Abbey Gates from September 2013 as a new teacher, covering Mrs O’Dea’s maternity leave (not necessarily in Y2!)
Gareth will be visiting Abbey Gates over the Summer term and we look forward to working with him

GOOD/BAD NEWS!
Miss Katie Allen has good news, she has a permanent teaching post at a Nottingham City school - so bad news, she will be leaving us. Katie has been a valued member of the team for two years and will be missed! We wish her all the best at her new school and know she will keep in touch!
