Year 12 and 13 Parents’ Surgery – Thursday 4th December 2014, 4.00pm – 6.30pm

Posted by on Nov 18, 2014 in Notices | No Comments

The Year 12 and 13 Parents’ Surgery is on Thursday 4 December 2014 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 from this term. Progress Tracker is designed to give you an
    overview of your child’s performance against their potential as well as the level of effort and
    attendance in each of their subjects. It is issued three times a year in Year 12 and Year 13 to enable
    you to follow your child’s progress across the year.
  2. 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

We have moved to an online booking system for Parents’ Surgeries.  This worked very successfully for the Parents’ Surgeries at the end of last year.
