Are there examples of letters informing parents of a change of teacher? In this article, we link to letters from primary and secondary schools written to notify parents of staffing changes. You will also find examples of school newsletters informing parents of revised staffing arrangements.

Letter to parents

St Nicholas' Church of England (CofE) Infants' School in Oxfordshire sent a letter to parents informing them of a number of staff changes within the school.

The letter:

  • Explains which staff are leaving, and why
  • Thanks them for their contribution to the school
  • Gives details about the recruitment process to replace the staff members
  • Introduces a new teacher

Some schools use a school newsletter to notify parents of changes to staffing.

For example, a newsletter from Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary School in Tower Hamlets explains that one of the school's class teachers will be leaving at half term, and introduces the new teacher:
