Parents’ Evenings

All Parents evenings (Y7-Y13) run from 5pm-8pm in the Sixth Form Block.

Reception Class parents meetings are held in The Larch Centre.

The aim of parents’ evening is to receive personal feedback on the academic and social progress of your child. The teacher will outline the level they are currently at, targets to improve and specific strategies. Class books or assessments may be available to explicitly show a point. Parents’ evening appointments are around 5 minutes, therefore if longer conversations are required further meetings can be arranged.

As part of your commitment to the school we do expect every parent to attend with their child. If you cannot attend for exceptional reasons please ring to arrange alternative arrangements.

Set up
Secondary students are required to make appointments with all their teachers 1-2 weeks before the event. On arrival please go to the cover way entrance by the sixth form to register. Departments are located throughout the building to allow more privacy. Due to the nature of the event there may be some delays. Your child can help a smooth parent’s evening by booking in appointments at appropriate times.

The PSA attend (Y7-11 evenings) to sell second-hand uniform (so please pop along for replacements even if it isn’t ‘your’ evening!)
