  • End of Year to Parents and Carers - Friday 20 July 2018

    Published 23/07/18, by Mark Shutter

    Dear Parents / Carers

    Please find below my usual information, letters and updates on events that have taken place this week along with some information for the start of next academic term. This week brings me to the end of my third year as headteacher at Cotham and I have to say that with each day that goes by I become ever prouder of the achievements of our wonderful students and staff. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the essential support you provide to ensure your children get the best from school and hope that you will also join with me in thanking the staff for their excellent and hard work this year.

    I wish all of you, our students and their loved ones a really enjoyable and I hope, restful, summer break.

    Please find below my usual information, letters and updates on events that have taken place this week.

    With best wishes for another lovely warm weekend!

    Dear Parents / Carers
     
    As you will be aware following my announcement in last week’s mailing, we were extremely disappointed to have had our planning permission for the replacement sports pavilion on our playing fields Stoke Lodge denied last week. I will write again shortly with details of the next steps to be taken by the school as we continue to endeavour to get our students back onto our offsite playing fields at Stoke Lodge
     
    On Monday 26 June, I and other school representatives, including governors and students attended a Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee meeting at Bristol City Hall. The Committee confirmed that the land would not be granted TVG status.
     
    I would like to thank everyone who attended the planning meetings and for the continued support of the school community. I would like in particular to thank one of our students Abdifatah Hassan, a current Year 11 student who will be moving into the North Bristol Post 16 Centre in September. Abdi is a very successful young Athlete who came to both of the hearings and he wrote a passionate statement on behalf of all of our students to support our planning application which I would like to share with you all.

    Dear Parents / Carers
     
    As you know it has been our intention to get our students back onto our offsite playing fields at Stoke Lodge in September. Therefore, I am exceptionally disappointed to tell you that planning permission for our replacement sports pavilion on our playing fields Stoke Lodge was denied yesterday for the second time due to concerns about a possible increase in traffic because the replacement pavilion design has a 40% increase in floorspace. The increase in floorspace is simply to achieve a better facility for our students. The school does not intend to increase use of the Fields beyond that which they have been used previously.
     
    On Monday 26 June, I and other school representatives, including governors and students, will be attending Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee at 2pm, Bristol City Hall. This is because, following the recent judgement handed down by High Court Judge Sir Wyn Williams to quash the Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee decision to grant TVG status to the land, the Committee must now reconsider that decision.
     
    The meeting is open to the public and you are welcome to attend in an observation capacity.
     
    Following this meeting and the decision taken by the Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee on the day, I will write again with an update and next steps to be taken by the school.
     
    Please find below my usual information, letters and updates on events that have taken place this week.

    Dear Parents / Carers

    Please find below my usual information, letters and updates on events that have taken place this week. You will notice that some of the Key Stage information is repeated again this week. Feedback from parents has indicated that it is useful to receive this crucial information each week during the exam period.
