It is absolutely wonderful to see everyone back in school and hear the joy and excitement of learning resounding through the school.
The world is always full of changes, and no less in Sharow school where we have some changes to tell you about in our teaching staff.
Mr Brook will be leaving us at Easter to begin a career in the fire and rescue service. He will be very much missed and remembered for lots of things - not just his Christmas suit.
Miss Tye is going to be teaching Class 3 from after the Easter break and some joint teaching will take place over the next few weeks to ensure a smooth handover.
We have already begun a recruitment process to appoint a teacher for Class 5 and will shortly be in a position to share the outcome with you.
