Subject consultation meeting for Y8 students, parents/carers – Thursday 17 December, 3:15-6:15pm

The booking system is available here.

Appointments with each teacher will last for ten minutes. 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 Mrs Winstone.

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.

Unfortunately, Mr Cook and Mrs Perry are unable to be present on this occasion. If your child is taught by Mr Cook or Mrs Perry, you will receive information as to his/her progress, either via letter or telephone.

Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer.
