I am interested to know if other teachers are having the same situation as myself?
I have several GCSE students all are taking GCSE music and have completed their practical performance part of the the exam.
During the last week parents have announced their intentions to stop lessons for their children during the summer term so they can concentrate on revising for GCSE'S. It appears they feel too much pressure to fit in lessons as well.
My concern is that having a huge gap between now and the Autumn term they will lose so many skills that they have already built up and possibly not come back to lessons at all.
Obviously I will have quite a big gap in my timetable and loss of income for the summer term.
Although they do have to give me notice as required in my [email protected]'s.
Is this a general trend? I have never had this epidemic situation in all the years that I have been teaching?
