Year 9 Options Evening and Subject Based Parents’ Evening

12th December 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Year 9 Options Evening and Subject Based Parents’ Evening

Two separate evening sessions have been arranged to support your child in choosing their optional Key Stage 4 subjects and having an update on their current progress:

1. Options Evening: Wednesday 8th January 2020 at 4.30 p.m. in the Main Hall. The evening will include an explanation of the Options Process, issuing Options Booklets and an opportunity to ask questions after the main presentation.

2. Parents’ Evening: Monday 20th January 2020 from 3.30 p.m.

Parents’ Evening interviews will be by appointment and should be made for 10 minute time slots. Each interview should last approximately 5 minutes to allow you to move onto your next appointment. This should reduce the need for queuing and provide a focused feedback on your child’s progress. A timetable is attached, which must be completed by your son/daughter in negotiation with his/her teachers. I would ask you to impress upon your child the need to complete this timetable as quickly as possible.

During the parents’ evening on 20th January, the school’s Careers Adviser will be available should you wish to discuss any matters relating to your child’s subject choices. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity to obtain expert advice in this area please speak to Mrs. D. Warlow on the evening who will be located in the main hall.

Provision will be made for you to sign a register in the school foyer on arrival to enable the process to be monitored for the benefit of all parents attending the evening.

Yours faithfully

Mr. A. Owens
Deputy Headteacher
