I thought that it would be helpful if I gave you advance notice of the Parent Teacher Evenings and examinations taking place this academic year. The details are on the back of this letter. The Parent Teacher Evenings offer an opportunity for a brief meeting in which staff can report to parents on a pupil’s work and progress.
It goes without saying that if you are concerned about any matter please do not feel that you have to wait until the Parent Teacher Evening to raise it with the School. Please contact your child’s Form Tutor at any time.
Similarly, if you feel that a question or concern will take longer to discuss than the limited time available at a Parent Teacher Evening, then please do make a separate appointment at any mutually convenient time.
In addition to these meetings we also send out written reports on your child’s progress on a regular basis throughout the year. Details of the timings of these are below:
Years 4-9 Interim reports one week before the end of autumn and spring terms.
Full report one week before the end of summer term
Year 10 Interim Reports one week before the end of the autumn and one week after May half term.
Full report one week before the end of the spring term.
Year 11 Interim report before October half term.
Full report two weeks after the start of spring term.
