Year 10 Parents’ Evening - Thursday 14th December 2017 - 4.00pm - 8.00pm
I am writing to invite you to attend the Year 10 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 14th December 2017 which will provide you with an opportunity to discuss your son/daughter’s progress with subject teachers.
This year we are introducing a new online booking system for making appointments with tutors through Parents Evening System. Add this link to your browser https://biddenham.parentseveningsystem.co.uk and you will be taken directly to the login page. Then enter your details and your child’s details as required on the login screen. You will need to use the first name and surname in full as it is recorded on our school system. Bookings will open on Monday 4th December and will close at midday Thursday 14th December. The link can also be accessed via email and the school website.
Should there be any problems with this you can call or email one of our administrators directly to book appointments or students themselves can make bookings centrally with staff. Please see the contact details below:
Julie Giles firstname.lastname@example.org
Kali Sheimar email@example.com
You will be able to book 5 minute appointments with subject teachers, but please do remember to leave time between sessions for movement to different rooms.
Representatives from the Learning and Language Support departments will be available to discuss your son/daughter’s individual needs. Please do book these centrally if required. Additionally, there will be a Parent Information ‘drop-in’ clinic run by members of the Senior Leadership Team that will allow for more in-depth discussion about GCSE reforms, our assessment system, individual student progress, plans for the future and any other questions that you may wish to raise.
The tracking reports will be sent home on Wednesday 13th December. It is advisable to bring these with you on the evening to inform conversations with subject teachers. These discussions are vitally important in helping both students and parents understand what is needed in order for students to achieve success in their public examinations.
Subject specific information about the GCSE specifications and exam boards can be found on the school website. Please encourage your son/daughter to take advantage of the support and opportunities available.
All teaching staff will be situated in Akabusi Block (reception area). Maps and refreshments will be available on the evening. I look forward to meeting you on this important occasion. However, if you are unable to attend, but wish to discuss matters regarding your child’s progress, please contact their tutor or me at school.
