NEW members of staff are being welcomed to Oxenhope Primary School.

Head teacher John Parkin informed members of Oxenhope Parish Council of the latest recruits at their November meeting.

"We've appointed a new teacher who will start in January," he added.

"She's an experienced teacher from Wilsden who'll be working at the school three days a week.

"We have also taken on a new reception teacher who will be with us while another member of staff is on maternity leave.

"A lot of schools are struggling to recruit at the moment, so I'm really pleased that we're still getting such strong candidates."
