Changes to Staffing in Mathematics

11 January 2017
Dear Parent/Carer
Changes to Staffing in Mathematics
You may be aware that there have recently been changes to our staffing in the Maths Department. Whilst this is never ideal, especially midway through an academic session, please be assured we are doing all we can to continue to offer a high quality learning experience in this subject.
Mr Hamish Davidson joined the Department on Monday 9 January and he will be with us until at least the end of the summer term.  Mr Alan Koturbasz will be joining later on Monday 30 January and will be with us initially for a 12-month period.
Both Mr Davidson and Mr Koturbasz are experienced teachers and I am confident they will build on the work of the department and deliver a very positive learning experience for our learners.
Until Mr Koturbasz joins us, Mrs Justine Haddow, a Maths specialist, who works in our Support for Learning Team, will help out in the interim teaching S1-3 Maths classes. There will be 2 periods per week where we cannot provide a Maths specialist, one period for S1 and 1 period for S2 until 30 January. However, arrangements are in place to ensure that no single class will experience an extended time without specialist teaching input.
Should you wish to discuss any matter further, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Pupil Support Leader in the first instance or alternatively you can address any matters to me.
Yours sincerely
Ross Hunter
Head Teacher
