Year 8 Parents' Evening

The Year 8 Parents’ Evening will be held on Thursday 18th January 2018. As you will know success in all years is essential to ensure student's immediate and long term future and therefore we feel it is essential that parents/carers attend this evening.

At this event, you will have the opportunity to speak to subject teachers and discuss strategies to ensure student success over the coming months.

The evening will be organised on an appointment system, with five minutes consultation time with each subject teacher.  Students have been given an appointment sheet and will need to book appointments with all of their teaching staff in order for you to receive feedback on their progress and attitude. Teaching staff will be located in the atrium and restaurant area.

Students will be issued with appointment sheets in their SSP lessons which they can use to make appointments with their teachers to help you plan your visit on the evening.

In addition, the following key members of staff will also be in attendance:-

  • Mrs Coulson (Achievement Leader – Year 8)
  • Mr Murray (Year Manager – Year 8)
  • Mrs Youll (Head of Learning Support)

Following the Academy’s most recent Ofsted inspection in May 2017 where the overall effectiveness was judged to be inadequate, the Academy are eager to share with parents/carers the progress that we have made since. With that in mind, the Director of School and a member of the Local Governing Body will be available to provide parents/carers with the relevant updates, and to answer any questions that in relation to the Academy’s development.

If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Murray.
