Y9 Consultation Evening

Posted by: administrator

Dear Parents/Carers and Year 9 Students,

Year 9 Consultation Evening

Thursday 8 December 2016 - 4.30pm – 7.30pm

Now that students have settled into Year 9, we feel that this is an important time to meet to discuss progress in the different subject areas.  We are therefore pleased to invite parents and students to a Consultation Evening on Thursday 8 December between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.  We hope you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you on the evening.

It is also an opportunity to start to discuss subject options for Key Stage 4.  A further Information Evening will be held on Wednesday 22 March 2017 about subject options.

We should be grateful if you would adopt the following procedure for obtaining appointments:

  1. List overleaf the members of staff you feel you need to meet, and complete the section at the top of the page.  We do need to know whether you can be present for the full three hour period or not, and would be grateful if you would make this clear against ‘period of visit’ (this is also available in your son’s/daughter’s planner).
  2. Ask your son/daughter to obtain appointment times during the course of the coming week for those members of staff you wish to see.
  3. Some staff may request to see you if they have concerns.  If this is the case, staff will ask students for their appointment sheet.
  4. Ensure that your son/daughter returns the sheet/or their planner to you before the Consultation Evening.

Your son’s/daughter’s tutor will check daily that the appointments are being made; we should be grateful if you, too, would keep a check at home.

If the system is to work we will need to keep strictly to the 5 minute appointment times. If a problem cannot be resolved during this time please do not hesitate to arrange further contact with me or the relevant member of staff.

Yours sincerely,

Lorraine Phippen

Deputy Headteacher
