Parent Teacher Meetings

Throughout the school year there will be opportunities for parents to meet teachers. There is also one evening when all teachers make themselves available to speak with parents regarding their child’s progress.

Our Year 8 Parent Teacher Meeting will take place around the last week in November from 4.00 pm until around 6.00 pm.

We cannot overemphasise the importance of attending this evening for the following reasons;

  • it gives you an opportunity to get to know your child’s teachers
  • it allows you a chance to raise any issues you may have in a particular subject
  • it gives you an opportunity to see how your child is progressing and what strengths/weaknesses they may have.

You will receive a fortnight’s notice of the meeting and your child will bring home a page on which is written the names of their teachers. You need to bring this with you on the night. It is also advisable to speak with the form teacher, because they have a good general picture of your child’s progress.

During the year also we may invite you to come in to attend the following evenings;

Parenting Programmes – All new parents are invited to attend a five/six week parenting programme. This is teacher led, taking place in the evening and to date has proved to be enjoyable for those who participated.

Paired Reading Programme – Year 8 Parents are invited to participate in a paired reading programme during Lent each year. This is explained in full at one evening meeting.

You are welcome to see your child’s form teacher at any other time. All we ask is that you make an appointment.
