Bye Bye Catherine Lea, and Michelle

After three enjoyable years Catherine is on her way to pastures new. She takes up her new position as SENDCO at Chaucer school from January. Over her time with us Catherine has worked with almost every year group and delivered creative and engaging learning opportunities. Her favourite class I am sure, by far, are her current one that she has taught twice over the years. We wish Catherine well in her new adventure and are truly grateful for all she has given.

Michelle leaves us today after what can only be described as a lifetime of dedication to our school. She shared yesterday her St Cuthbert journey in assembly - and gosh what an emotional one it has been. Michelle will be truly missed for her organisational skills, her love of children and the way in which she has supported our vulnerable families over the years. She has secured another position, just this week, as a community connector co-ordinator at Betterstart and we are thrilled that she is still working within our Blackpool communi-ty. We hope to see her every now and again. Of course Tia is still with us and we’ll no doubt see her on the playground or at PTFA meetings if we are lucky.
