We the undersigned wish to register our concern over the dismissal of Juliette Pegram as Manager of the Headlands setting of Haxby Playgroups. Several of us have approached the committee directly requesting more information about this, but none has been forthcoming. As parents of children attending the playgroup at the time of this event we feel we should be allowed to know the background to the decision. We would also like to know the reason it was felt necessary to keep this information obscured. We are all more than happy with the level of care our children have received in the setting and from Juliette in particular, so we are at a loss as to why she should be so abruptly removed from her post. We would like to register our support for Juliette and, unless you can provide compelling evidence as to why her dismissal was an absolute necessity, her reinstatement as Manager.
