We are pleased to invite you to the Year 9 Parents/Options Evening which is to be held on Tuesday 17th January 2017. This will provide you with the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and to discuss his/her progress to date. Furthermore, you and your child will also have the opportunity to discuss Key Stage 4 Option Choices with their teachers. Teachers of Option subjects will also be available to talk to. Your child will be given an Option booklet with information about the subjects and the form on which to make their choices. It is important that your child makes an appointment to meet with their Tutor too, who will be able to discuss the Option Pathway your child will access on and assist with any queries you may have.
The evening will begin at 4.00pm and finish at 6.30pm. The evening also includes an ‘Options Talk’ by Head Teacher, Mr Calvin at 6.00pm in the School Gymnasium. This is to ensure that you and your child are fully informed about the best Key Stage 4 route for them.
I will not have to remind you of what a very important time this is for your child; we cannot stress enough how essential your attendance is. Please make every effort to attend. Shortly, your child will be given a sheet to make appointments for you. This sheet should also record the names of staff for appointments. These appointments last for five minutes. From experience, the system only works well if both parents and staff keep to their time allocation, so I do ask for your full co-operation in this. If there is a need for a lengthy discussion, then another mutually convenient time can be arranged.
The evening will take place in the English Corridor, Maths Department, and Gymnasium. A room guide will be available on the evening. There will also be refreshments available throughout. We look forward to seeing you there.
