Reports and Formal Contact
We believe that contact with parents/carers is very important. As part of this work, the school provides 4-5 formal points of contact between the school and parents/carers for each year group.
These include: one or two parents’/carers' evenings; termly report updates; year specific tutor evenings or other year events. The timings of these vary according to the year group.
Information sent home
The termly reports gives details of the attitudes to learning and progress.
At the beginning of each term parents/carers also receive information regarding their child's attendance for the preceding term. This provides details of any absences or lateness recorded and also the percentage attendance so far achieved.
Parents/carers are encouraged to contact the school with any concerns. In addition, the school uses the data provided by teachers to intervene where there are concerns about attitudes to learning or progress.
Meetings with subject teachers
Virtual Subject Teacher Meetings run from 3.45 pm for Years 9 - 11, 4.00 pm for Years 12 and 13, and start at 2.30 pm for Years 7 and 8.
There are evenings to support transition from KS3 (Years 7 and 8) to KS4 (Years 9,10 and 11), as well as the 16+ evening.
