Year 8 Parents’ Information Evening

The Year 8 Parents’ Information Evening will take place on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 at 6pm.

The Year 8 Parents’ Information Evening will take place on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 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 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.


For some students, the transition from Year 7 to Year 8 can result in a slight dip in progress and achievement levels.  It is important that students understand where they are working well and where they need to improve.  We want to ensure that your child is happy, confident and motivated about their school life.  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 at the end of Year 9.  Parents will be provided with a Year 8 information booklet and details of our updated 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 to attend this important meeting. Students do not need to attend.  Please return the reply slip to your child’s form tutor by Monday 20th October. A copy of the letter is available on the Letters and Permission slips page.
