Year 8 Parent Consultation Evening: 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.

Success in Year 8 will underpin future academic success for your child at Winifred Holtby Academy as your child will be choosing their options in May.  Their attainment and behaviour in subjects this year must reflect their desire to study the subject at a higher level.

This evening will allow you to receive current attainment data and an update on your child’s progress through the year.  Now that National Curriculum levels have been replaced with Progress measures this data will show how well the children are performing in relation to the new GCSE levels and help to inform you about whether subjects are suitable for your child to continue studying in KS4.

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 located in the LRC.

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