Year 8 Parents’ Evening and Option’s Information Evening
I would like to invite you to attend two important events in the Year 8 calendar; firstly, the Year 8 Parents’ Evening on Thursday 9th February 2017 and Key Stage 4 Options Information Evening on Thursday 23rd February.
Over the next few months, you and your child will need to decide which subjects they wish to study for Years 9, 10 and 11. Parents evening is a timely opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with subject teachers before choices are made. The information evening will explain which subjects are available and give further detail on suitability, based on your child’s interests and ability. More detailed information on the process will be sent to you shortly.
As with last year’s Parent’s Evening, appointments can once again be made online. The appointment system will open on Monday 30th January and will close on Monday 6th February. Text and e-mail reminders will be sent to you nearer the time. Should you need to make any changes to appointments after 8th February, please contact Mrs Tucker, Year 8 Pastoral Secretary on 0118 9590466 ext. 227.
Please visit https://prospect.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your appointments. A short guide on how to add appointments can be found below.
If you do not have access to the internet, please contact Mrs Tucker as above, who will be happy to add appointments on your behalf.
