Year 11 Parents Information Evening
Year 11 Parents/Carers - Please see important letter brought home by your son/daughter this evening.
6th September 2013
You are invited to attend the Year 11 Parents Information Evening on Wednesday 11th September at 6pm.
In order to ensure that your child achieves their full academic potential, we would like to present you with an outline of the key exam and assessment dates and how best we can support your child during this important year. Feedback from previous parental surveys indicated that parents would like the opportunity to engage more actively in their child’s education and be aware of when they may need additional support at home.
Year 11 is a crucial year and for many students and their parents, it can become a stressful time. Having a conversation with your son or daughter about what they enjoy, what they are good at, what motivates them to learn, the environment they want to be in and their preferred learning style can be the key to their success.
Information will be presented on the choices that are available to them after their GCSE’s and how best to make an informed decision about post-16. Parents will be provided with a Year 11 information booklet and details of our new virtual learning environment, “Frog”.
Refreshments will be served in the school canteen from 5.20pm and the 30 minute presentation will start promptly at 6pm. We hope that you will be able attend this important meeting. Students do not need to attend. Please return the reply slip below to your child’s form tutor by Tuesday 10th September.
Mrs A M McLoughlin
Assistant Head Teacher
