Dear supply teacher

10th January 1997 at 00:00
Good morning. May I introduce myself?

I am the temporary appointment in charge of Pastoral Care.

I'd like you to meet the Acting Head and the Acting Deputy Head who is filling in for the Deputy while he is replacing the Head who is away with stress.

This is the temp who is replacing the Head of section who is Acting Deputy.

You will be covering for the part-time two month contract for Special Needs The Directors are handing over to the Regional Board soon so funding is uncertain The previous Head of Sixth Form set up a system to reorganise the timetable but this has been on hold since she was made redundant I should tell you that I have been given notice.
