An overwhelming majority of parents requested a return to a face-to-face parents’ evening in our survey. Please make sure you read the letter that was sent out yesterday telling you how to book an appointment and explaining how we will be adapting our usual format to make the evening as safe as possible. It is really important that you arrive five minutes before your appointment time, as we will be sticking strictly to the time slots allocated throughout the evening to avoid anyone getting cold waiting outside. As per the letter, the hall has four entrances and teachers from each year group will be calling their next appointment from the door allocated to their year group. A bell will be rung at the end of the appointment time and we ask parents to end their appointments promptly. As previously, additional appointments may be requested if nine minutes proves insufficient.
Class teachers will be sharing information about your child’s recent assessments as well as talking about how your children have settled in this year. In the summer parent questionnaire, you told us you would like clearer information about your child’s attainment and any additional support they need, and so we are keen to make sure this happens early in the year.
