Briefing and subject consultation meeting for Y11 students, parents/carers – Thursday 10 November

The booking system is available here.

Y11 is a critical and intense time. It is crucial that students, parents/carers and staff work together closely, from the start, so that achievement is high.

We will be holding two briefing meetings on 10th November, starting at 4pm or 6.30pm. In these meetings we will:

  • communicate the minimum grades which students are required to achieve, and explain the rationale behind this
  • share results from the assessments which students are currently taking
  • issue study guides – so that students are able to revise independently
  • clarify homework arrangements and expectations
  • explain our approach to additional learning sessions.

Individual teacher consultation appointments will take place between 4:30-6:30pm and then 7-9pm. Y11 subject teachers will provide clear feedback on what students need to do in order to achieve the required grades.

Information about the Y11 prom will also be provided at this meeting – students need to attend in order to receive the prom card which will be required to obtain a ticket.  Students who attend with a parent/carer, and attend pre-booked consultations with at least five examined subject teachers, will earn their first money off voucher towards the prom ticket cost.

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 (in the form of e.g. 11-4)

You will 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.

Students are required to attend, with their parent/carer. Y11 lessons on 10 November will end earlier than normal at 3:40pm. This will allow students who are attending the 4pm briefing meeting to collect a drink and a biscuit (which the academy will supply) from the SYSZ, before making their way back up to the grey arena to be seated in time for a 4pm start.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
