Year 7 Parents’ Surgery 4.00pm – 6.30pm Tuesday 10 June 2014

Posted by on May 9, 2014 in News | No Comments

The Year 7 Parents’ Surgery is on Tuesday 10 June 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 Trackers you received through your child in November, January and April.  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 four times a year to enable you to follow their progress across the year.  The last tracker for this academic year is issued towards the end of this term.
  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

For the first time, we have moved to an online booking system for Parents’ Surgeries.  This has worked very successfully for the recent Year 8 and 10 Parents’ Surgery.
