Parents' Evenings Dates
Parents' evenings provide parents and carers with the opportunity to discuss their child's progress with their subject teachers, ask questions and get advice on how to best support them at home.
All our parents evening appointments take place online and we use the web-based program ‘SchoolCloud Parents Evening’ in order to facilitate this – further details including instructions on how to book and attend appointments will be sent through to parental contacts closer to the evening.
We have used online parents' evening appointments for a number of years as they allow parents to choose the appointments they want at the time which is most convenient for them, with no waiting about and with no travelling involved, which fits in better with most families home life. Another advantage to the online process is that appointments always run to time and teachers and parents are able to get straight into a conversation about the student. If parents feel that these appointments do not allow enough time for feedback there is the option for further follow up after the evening if required.
We also plan to invite parents into school for a face-to-face event for each year group – further details will be communicated once confirmed.
Online parents' evenings for this year are scheduled as follows:
- Year 7 - Thursday 1 February 2024
- Year 8 - Thursday 9 May 2024 (with the Year 8 options evening taking place in school on Thursday 2 May 2024)
- Year 9 - Thursday 29 February 2024
- Year 10 - Thursday 18 April 2024
- Year 11 - Thursday 11 December 2024
Please do not feel that you have to wait for these occasions to discuss your child's progress. If you wish to speak to a member of staff at any other point please email email@example.com and your request will be directed to the most appropriate person.
