Year 8 Parent/Carer Evening

Year 8 Parent Consultation Evening – Tuesday 13th June 2017, 4.00 – 7.00pm.

We would like to invite you to your child’s Parental Consultation Evening. This evening is an opportunity for you to discuss in detail your child’s current attainment, attendance, attitude and progress in the different subject areas.

This is the first time this year you have had the opportunity to talk to individual teachers and it is important that you attend the event, particularly as your child has now made their Options selection. Success in Year 8 will underpin future academic success for your child at Winifred Holtby Academy.

As you may be aware from the recent Option’s evening National Curriculum levels have been replaced with Progress measures that will show how well the children are performing in relation to the new GCSE levels. This evening will allow you to receive current attainment data and an update on your child’s progress through the year.

On the evening you will be provided with a ‘Pupil’s Progress Report’. An attendance certificate will also be issued.  If there are any ‘N’s recorded (no reason for absence) you should see a member of the House Team on the evening to clear up any unexplained absences.

Your child has been given an appointment sheet – please check that they are arranging appointments with their subject teachers, however, staff will make every effort to see you with or without appointments.

On arrival at the Academy please enter through the main entrance where you will be supplied with the ‘Pupil Progress report’.  Academy prefects will be on hand throughout the evening to guide you.

If you require child care for younger siblings, a crèche will be available on the night, this will be staffed by our External Learning Co-ordinator.

As always, we look forward to meeting you on the evening.

Mrs Stanforth
