Year 11 Parents’ Surgery – Thursday 26 November 2015
4.00 pm – 6.30 pm

The Year 11 Parents’ Surgery is on Thursday 26 November 2015 and you are warmly invited to join us to discuss your child’s progress.  This is an important time in the academic life of your child and the evening provides the perfect opportunity for you to find out exactly what needs to be done as you and the school work together to enable your child to maximise their potential.

Preparing for the Parents’ Surgery

There are a couple of things which you can do before you attend the Parents’ Surgery which will help you to get the most out of the evening:

  1. Look at the Progress Tracker which came home this week along with Progress Tracker 4 from Year 10.  Progress Tracker is designed to give you an overview of your child’s performance against their potential as well as the level of effort in each of their subjects.  It is issued three times a year in Year 11 to enable you to follow your child’s progress across the year.
  1. Please look through your child’s work and planner – you can do this together over the next few weeks and discuss how they feel they are progressing. Subject teachers will have written specific comments on how your child can improve in exercise books, on their work and/or planners.  This will happen at key milestones in their learning rather than on every piece of work.  Although it will vary from subject to subject, on average there will be at least one key comment for every 6 lessons.

Making appointments

Go to:

to see which appointments are available and select ones that are convenient for you.

You will need:

  • Your child’s legal first name and surname
  • Your child’s date of birth
  • Your child’s tutor group name

Troubleshooting Tips – Read before Booking! 

  • Only parents/guardians that we have recorded as having parental responsibility can gain access and it is essential that your name title is as we have recorded in the school’s database.  For most failed access, it is usually one of these two issues.  Let us know if you have difficulties logging in and we can correct this for you.
  • Your child’s date of birth has to be entered in exactly the right format e.g. using two digits for the month and four digits for the year of birth – 12/09/2009.
  • Where it says ‘child’s register class’, you need to put in the tutor code, such as 11PA and not the teacher’s name.
  • The email address you enter is only to get a confirmation of your appointment. If the system is saying it does not recognise you, it will not be the email address that is the problem as the system does not hold your email address; try the tips above.

If you are unable to book, please email or call the school and a member of staff will help you.  We believe that this system will give parents much better control over their appointments and we hope that you will find it simple to use.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the evening and as usual there will be staff and student helpers on hand to assist you if you require any help.

Yours sincerely
Linda Griffin
Deputy Headteacher
