Whilst reports enable you to see how your son/daughter is performing, the chance to discuss what he/she is doing in class and how they can improve is very important to you as parents and us as teachers. Parents' Evenings offer that invaluable time to speak to your son/daughter's individual subject teachers and get a specific picture of how they are progressing.
There is a Parents' Evening for each Year Group at a point throughout the school year and these are published in advance on the school calendar. A letter will be sent informing parents/carers that the event is approaching and students will make appointments using a booking system. The evening runs from 4.00pm - 7.00pm and appointments are 5 minutes long. We advise that you leave a 5 minute gap between appointments to allow for movement between teachers/areas. Due to high number of teachers who teach your child and the number of classes a teacher teaches in that year group, it may not be possible to have an appointment with all your son/daughter's teachers. If there is a teacher you wish to see but can't, please do not hesitate to contact them for a telephone consultation.
You will be able to access our online booking system up to a week before the event to book your appointments. A link for this can be found at:
Teachers will be seated in the Main Hall, Canteen and Library. A map of where each teacher is situated will be given to parents/carers on arrival. Senior staff, Heads of Faculty, pastoral and SEN/D staff will also be available on the evening should you wish to speak to them.
