Headteacher update – Staffing changes for September 2021


Dear Parents and Carers,

As we approach the end of another school year we wanted to share with you some staff changes for September 2021.

You may have already heard that Mrs Perkins, one of our Admin staff, has made a very important decision to retire! Mrs Perkins has been at Rumney Juniors and Rumney Primary School for approximately 34 years. She started as a parent helper and never left! We are all going to miss her cheerie smile and her unfailing care for pupils, families and staff. She has the biggest heart! Hopefully the children and you as family members will have the opportunity to speak with her before the end of term.

Mrs Margetts (Y5) is leaving to pursue a different area of teaching. Mrs Margetts has been a member of staff for approximately 18 years. She is embarking on new training to support the next steps in her teaching career providing specific support and intervention for children. She is another member of staff who will be sorely missed. Hopefully you will get a chance to speak with her before the end of term.

Mrs Jones (Y5) will be changing her role at Rumney Primary School. From September she will be the new Senior Admin Officer in our busy school office working alongside Mrs Blake. You will still see her at school but in a different role.

Miss Nicholls (Y6) will be going on maternity leave at the end of this academic year. Such lovely and exciting news!

Iā€™m sure you will all join us in sending to them all our very best wishes for their future happiness. We will be keeping in touch and we look forward to finding out about their new adventures and meeting new family additions!

This means we will be welcoming new staff to our team:

Mr Bushby – class teacher
Miss Crossland – class teacher
Miss Gale – class teacher
Mrs Vaughan – HLTA (Higher Level Teaching assistant)

We are looking forward to them joining us.

A further Headteacher Update will be shared with all families before the end of term.

Thank you for your continued support, in particular during these challenging times.

Very best wishes,
Miss D E Williams
Headteacher
