Cotham School

Family Consultation Day Thursday 8 December 2022: CANCELLED

Dear Parents and Carers of Year 8 students 

Family Consultation Day Thursday 8 December 2022:  CANCELLED

It is with huge regret that, due to very high and unprecedented levels of staff absence, we have made the decision to cancel Year 8 Family Consultation Day that was due to take place tomorrow.  

You may be aware that there are significant pressures on all schools at the moment in securing agency staff for planned and unplanned absence.  Many of the bookings that we make are cancelled without notice.  

Obviously, our priority is to ensure that we continue to provide an excellent education for our students and this means that our priority is to have teachers in front of classes.  

We appreciate that this notice is very late coming to you, but absence and supply levels are constantly changing and we wanted to assess the impact of staffing absence before we made the decision to cancel the event.  

We appreciate that you will have been looking forward to the opportunity to meet your child’s tutor to discuss their progress in school.  We will look at other planned events for Term 3 and write to you once we have been able to identify a future date.  

Please accept my apologies again.   

With very best wishes,

Yours faithfully 

Ms J Butler
