Year 7 Parents’ Surgery – Wednesday 01 July 2015

Posted by on Jun 3, 2015 in Notices | No Comments

The Year 7 Parents’ Surgery is on Wednesday 01 July 2015 between 4.00pm and 6.30pm 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 which you received in November, January, and April ahead of the Parents’ Surgery. 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 in Year 7 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 use an online booking system for Parents’ Surgeries and this works very successfully.

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

Please note

Mr Broadbent, supply IT teacher, is not available for the Parents’ Surgery. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s progress in IT, then please use the email address below and the query will be forwarded accordingly for a response for you.

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.

To find out more, please find below the letter sent home with students and an accompanying Powerpoint file giving some great tips on how to use the booking system
