Year 9 Parents’ Evening

Our Ref: CC2/_je/ADM319
Date: 8 March 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 9 Parents’ Evening / Year 9 Options Evening

I would like to extend to you a warm invitation to visit the school on two occasions over the coming weeks.

The first event is the Year 9 Options Evening which will take place on Monday 19 March from 6.30pm. You will shortly receive separate information about this event.

The second event is the Year 9 Parents’ Evening which will take place on Tuesday 27 March at 3.30 pm in the main school hall.

If you would like to attend the Parents’ Evening, please ask your son/daughter to arrange appointment times for you with subject staff who will be available from 3:30–6:00 pm. Pupils will be issued with cards on which to record their appointment times after consultation with parents and subject teachers. Please ensure that appointment times made are acceptable to you.

This year, we will use both of our main buildings. Design Technology, Science and Maths staff will be based in the Technology building. All other subjects will be hosted in the main hall of the 1936 building. The split arrangement will have implications for students as they arrange their appointments. To avoid having to repeatedly change buildings, the subject appointments should be grouped together accordingly.

Appointments will be available at five-minute intervals. If you anticipate needing more time please do not hesitate to contact the school to speak to the appropriate member of staff.  We are required to keep a register of attendance – could you please sign the registers when you enter the main reception area of the humanities building.

May we remind you that it is the responsibility of the parent to keep the school informed of any changes to contact and medical details for your son/daughter. For your convenience, staff will be available in the main hall to take any updates that may be available.

Please complete the section below and ask your son/daughter to return it to their Form Tutor as soon as possible. Thanks for your continued support.

Yours sincerely

Sir Ken Gibson
Executive Head Teacher
