Departure of Mr Zac Mitchinson – Reception Teacher Peacocks

Dear Parents and Carers,

Re: Departure of Mr Zac Mitchinson – Reception Teacher Peacocks

At the end of this school Term, Mr Mitchinson will be leaving The Gatwick School. He has chosen to leave teaching for a period of time. I am sure the children will miss Mr Mitchinson and his positive, fun attitude to learning that he has included in his teaching.

From January 2019, Peacocks class will be taught by Miss Charlotte Goswell. She is an enthusiastic professional, has huge passion for Early Years and is a trusted member of staff. Miss Goswell has worked with The Gatwick School for over 4 years as a Teaching Assistant and is on the final stages of her Early Years Degree. Miss Goswell will complete this qualification over the Spring and Summer term and she will take up a Trainee Teacher position in September 2019. Throughout this transition, Miss Goswell will have an experienced in-school mentor to support her career development.

Miss Goswell will commence some Peacock’s transition lessons this week so that the children are fully familiar and comfortable with her when the new term commences in January. Mr Mitchinson will remain in the classroom working with the children alongside Miss Goswell to ensure a seamless transfer of responsibility.

We would like offer an opportunity to get to know Miss Goswell and have organised a ‘meet and greet’ session with Miss Goswell before the end of term from 220-250pm on Wednesday 5th December 2018. I would be grateful if you could email smitchinson@thegatwickschool.org.uk if you would like to attend this session as we will be providing some light refreshments.

Please do not hesitate to contact Miss Nagji or I if you would like to discuss further

Yours sincerely,

Mark Roessler                                         Nirali Nagji
