Parents' Evening: Teacher consultations and opportunities to view your child's work

Dear Parent / Carer,


I'm pleased to announce our arrangements for parents' consultations for this term.  Please read carefully.

During the disruption due to Covid-19 over the last 2-3 years, we have had to adapt and learn new methods of meeting with parents and showcasing the children's work.  


Throughout this time, we have considered your parent feedback and found that some prefer the use of technology, while some don't.  Some parents want to speak in depth to the teacher, some only want to see their child's work with them.  We want to give parents and carers flexibility and options so that they can choose how and when to meet with their child's teacher, to suit their preferences and needs.


Therefore, we are going offer the following:

  • Y1-Y6 Parent 'book looks', inviting parents into the school hall towards the end of the school day to look at their child's work with them, with access to teachers and support staff for discussion.
  • Early Years (Reception and Nursery) Stay and Play at the start of the day, with access to teachers and support staff for discussion.
  • Option of separate day/time to look at child's work with them if you can't make the class 'book look' - see your child's teacher to arrange.  
  • Optional additional consultation on Wednesday 16th November: 6-minute private scheduled consultations with the option of meeting face-to-face OR on Zoom.


We hope that this will give parents options that can suit a range of circumstances.


Y1-Y6 'book looks' dates, times and venue:

  • Year 2: Wednesday 9th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm / Junior Hall (please note: access from Infant playground due to pantomime)
  • Year 1: Thursday 10th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm / Infant Hall
  • Year 3: Thursday 10th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm / Junior Hall
  • Year 5: Friday 11th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm  / Infant Hall
  • Year 6: Friday 11th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm / Junior Hall
  • Year 4: Tuesday 15th November / 2:40pm - 3:15pm / Infant Hall

The Early Years (Reception and Nursery) Stay and Play:

  • Reception & Nursery: Tuesday 15th November / 9:00am / Early Years Classrooms


You DO NOT need to make an time appointment for these sessions above.


Private Parent Consultations - Wednesday 16th November 3:30 - 5:45pm


Once you have seen your child's work with them and had chance to briefly speak to the teacher, you may wish to book an additional private appointment, via Zoom or in person.  As we have work ongoing in school, we cannot have children unsupervised on site.  Therefore, if you are bringing your child (and any siblings), parents MUST keep them with them at all times.  Children are not allowed to play together in different parts of the school while you meet the teacher(s).


We will publish a booking form and optional Zoom link soon for you to book a teacher appointment, should you wish to make one.


I hope that you enjoy looking at your child's work and progress with them, and that our options give you the chances you need to ask questions and understand how your child is getting on at school.


Kind regards,


Rob Simpson


Head Teacher
