Year 7 Parent Consultation Evening - 16th October 2019

Dear Parent/Carer   There will be a consultation meeting for parents of Year 7 pupils on Wednesday 16th October 2019, from 4.30-7.30pm.  This is a very important occasion as it gives parents an excellent opportunity to review the progress their child is making leading up to their examinations. Pupils are expected to attend in full school uniform.   An appointment system has been arranged, based on five minute interviews.  Parents are asked to adhere to this timing very strictly otherwise the system will not work and there will be long delays.  Some members of staff teach large numbers of children in Year 7 and it may not be possible for them to see the parents of every child in their teaching groups during the evening.  In this case parents may make a separate appointment to see the teacher concerned at some future date.   In the Pupil Planner, there is a section for Parent Evening appointments.  All pupils must request an appointment time from each teacher and complete this page.  It is the responsibility of each child to ensure that these appointments are made and that they have seen every member of staff who teaches them.   Could you please email your child’s form tutor as soon as possible confirming whether or not you will be attending. Please include your child’s full name in the email.   Would parents also please ensure that, when making the appointments, the children allow time for movement between members of staff.   Thank you for your support in this matter and, should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.   Yours faithfully     Mr J Purkiss Deputy Head Teacher       YEAR 7 7B1        7B2        7C1        7C2        7G1        7G2        7W1       7W2       7W3
