Parents/Carers Consultation Evenings
The next parents/carers consultation evenings are for Year 9 & Year 11.
Year 9 appointments will be open for bookings at 6:00pm on Thursday 10 November 2022 - please see letter here.
Year 11 appointments will be open for bookings at 6:00pm on Monday 28 November 2022 - please see letter here.
All other year group appointments will be opened for booking around 3 weeks before the date - we will let you know.
We have reviewed feedback and attendance figures from our parental consultations evenings last year and have decided to continue with the online approach for this year.
According to the majority of feedback received, parents and carers felt:
- that they received the full 5 minutes of time for each subject and teacher and in the case of Post 16 the full 7 minutes;
- that it was a better fit with working commitments and allowed access from both home and work where necessary; and
- that staff needed to concentrate more on progress and next steps rather than a summary of course content.
Given that the average attendance last year was 97%, it would appear that this is the ideal option for the majority.
Finally, we will keep this decision under constant review and will communicate any changes well in advance for families and students.
