I was offered an NQT role (conditionally) 2 months ago before the pandemic changed life. I signed the offer letter and returned it (receiving a receipt confirmation email from the Headteacher). Since this pandemic has occurred, I have not heard anything from the school. Should I reach out to them and ensure my role is still secure given the uncertainty? If it makes any difference, the school is a new infant school expanding from EYFS and Y1 to Y2. They needed four new teachers. One of whom is obviously me. However, I recall the Headteacher saying on the interview day to candidates that she may be looking for a fifth teacher to replace a teacher who is going travelling. I am worried that I may be the fifth teacher and the COVID-19 has prevenetd the current teacher from travelling, losing my job offer. Do you think I should be concerned or a) is it normal to hear anything until July and b) could they just be extremely busy?
