Year 9 subject consultation meeting

Appointments are available for you to meet with your child’s teachers on Wednesday 28th March, 4.00pm – 7:00pm.

You are able to book five minute appointment slots using our electronic booking system. This is accessed here: https://parents-booking.co.uk/ipswichacademy

All meetings will take place in the school hall. Booking will be on a first come, first served basis and the booking system is now open. The number of appointments will, initially, be limited to five for each student to ensure that all parents/carers are able to participate. Nearer to the time, if additional appointments are available, we will release these into the booking system and notify you.

In order to login to the system, you will need the following information relating to your child, as held in our database:

  • Child’s first name
  • Child’s surname
  • Child’s date of birth
  • Child’s register class

You will also need to enter the details we have on record for you. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record. The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem. If you do not have access to the internet, or experience any problems with using the system, please contact the school and ask to speak with Susan Ring.

Subject teachers will meet with you and your child on an individual basis to provide clear feedback on your child’s learning. You will also have an opportunity to review your child’s exercise books. Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer.

Later on in the year we will be having our year nine options evening. The evening offers the opportunity to discuss the different option choices with subject teachers including subjects which your child may not have studied before. This will allow your child to make an informed decision on which subjects will be most suitable to take for their future prospects.

Colleges, sixth forms, universities, training providers and employers will also be present in the Senior Year Study Zone to give students a flavour of what their future choices might look like. Your child will have a chance to view literature and information as well as experiencing ‘have-a-go’ activities organised by the providers.

We will be in contact before Easter to confirm the date and time for the options evening, as well as outlining the options process for your child.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
