Staffing Update - December 2022

Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians, 

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that our SENCo Mr. Oliver Hodgman will be leaving Talbot Primary School at Christmas.  His last day will be Friday 16th December 2022. 

Mr Hodgman has been a valued member of staff over the last 11 years. As well as his work as our SENDCo he has also served as a class teacher and lead humanities across the school. He has been an integral part of the development of the humanities curriculum and has also taken a lead on things in the wider curriculum such as marking Remembrance Day.

We will miss him, and the energy and enthusiasm he has demonstrated for Talbot and its pupils over the years. We wish him the best of luck in his new role as an Assistant Headteacher in a school in Bournemouth.

Mr Hodgman will be replaced by Mrs Louise McDonald, who will be working in school on occasional days until she starts her substantive role during the Spring term. Until this time Mrs. Grandis will be covering the SENDCo role.

Sadly, we will also be saying goodbye to Mr. Michael Richards. He has supported us with Speech and Language for many years, he is a huge personality and will be greatly missed. His last day will also be Friday 16th December 2022. We wish him the best of luck in his new role.

Both gentlemen have made a high contribution to our school and will be greatly missed by staff, parents and pupils alike. 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Yours Sincerely, 

Mrs Kate Curtis
