We invite Parent/Carers to attend our Virtual Year 8 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 18 November.
Appointments will be available between 4pm and 6.30pm, With exception of, classes 8F/French with Mr Willis, 8X/Te2 and 8Y/Te2 with Mrs Ransom, will be held on the 17th November.
This is an important evening and provides parents/carers with an opportunity to discuss their child’s progress at school, along with an opportunity to discuss further option choices at school. Due to the continuing pandemic appointments will take place online using a web cam / microphone rather than attending in person. This can be easily accessed using a mobile device, tablet or laptop. We will continue to use our online Parents Evening system, which now has a built-in meeting features which parent/carers will use on the evening to join the meeting with members of staff.
In certain circumstances it may not be possible to see every member of staff, due to large class sizes being taught by that teacher. To enable as many parents/carers to speak to the members of staff they wish, we ask that appointments are only made where parent/carers have concerns about a subject or their child wishes to continue studying into GCSE.
Parents can book appointments by visiting the following link – Book an Appointment
Booking of appointments will be open from 7pm 8th November 2021 until 9pm 17th November 2021.

Should parents/carers wish to make any changes after this date, please contact the school office. If parents/carers are unable to attend on the evening, please log on to the online system, click the appropriate date and click “Unable to attend.” This is most important as it will help the office staff save time, by not needing to contact parents/carers by phone.
