We strongly encourage parents to take a keen interest in their child’s education and one of the best ways of demonstrating this interest is to attend the annual Parents’/Carers’ Evening. This is an opportunity for parents to talk with their child’s form tutor and teachers about how hard they are working and how well they are behaving. Other matters such as general attitude, attendance, punctuality, uniform, homework, rewards and sanctions may also be raised.
To support Parents’/Carers’ Evenings, parents receive a full school report, with written comments from their child’s form tutor and teachers on their progress over the last academic year.
Any parent/carer with a concern, of any description, is asked to raise it with the form tutor, or with the relevant teacher, or with a member of the leadership team. We will do all we can to address any concerns raised.
We are keen, as far as humanly possible, to ensure parental/carer attendance is no less than 100%.
Parents Evenings for the 2019/20 academic year will take place on the following dates:
- Year 10 – Wednesday 08 January 2020
- Years 12 and 13 – Tuesday 25 February 2020
- Year 11 – Thursday 05 March 2020
- Year 9 – Tuesday 24 March 2020
- Year 8 – Wednesday 06 May 2020
- Year 7 – Thursday 04 June 2020
Students are encouraged to attend parents’ evenings. They must wear full school uniform.
