Message from Nicola McDowell – Head of Education

I wrote to you last week to let you know that Mrs Helen Gardyne had been appointed as Head Teacher for Haddington Primary School and that she would start after the October Break.

I am now writing with interim arrangements. Mrs Sally Murray and Mrs Kirsty Murray, DHTs, will share the post of Acting Head Teacher until Mrs Gardyne starts in post.

The arrangements will be as follows:

* Monday/Tuesday and alternate Fridays: Kirsty Murray

* Wednesday/Thursday and alternate Fridays: Sally Murray

On these days, the Acting Head Teacher will be based in the upper campus.

As always, your first point of contact should be the class teacher. Following that year group/level leads will be as follows:

* Early Level: Sally Murray

* First Level: Kirsty Murray

* Second Level: Caroline Wight

I am very grateful to Mrs Murray and Mrs Murray for their support in taking the school forward as Acting Head Teacher in advance of Mrs Gardyne joining as Head Teacher.

I wish you all a lovely summer break when it comes.
