Year 8 Parent/Carer Consultation Evening

Year 8 Parent/Carer Consultation Evening, Wednesday 27th January, 4.30-7.30pm.

The Parent/Carer Consultation Evening, scheduled Wednesday, 27th January 2016 provides an important opportunity for you to discuss your child’s progress with subject teachers as they prepare for Year 9 and commencing their GCSE courses.

The evening will begin at 4.30pm and finish at 7.30pm.  Our aim is to enable you to meet subject teachers at a time most convenient to you.

Each appointment with subject teachers will last 5 minutes and I ask that you keep to schedule, so that the evening can run smoothly with minimum delays. Should there be issues that require longer discussion, a further appointment to meet with the teacher concerned can, of course, be requested.

Unlike Student Review Day, appointments are made by the students and these are on a first-come, first-served basis.  Teachers will be encouraging students to make appointments in their lessons therefore; it will be helpful if they have an idea of the time you are able to attend and which teachers you want to see. Appointment slips are to be found in your child’s Student Planner, which they should have with them every day. Please remember to either bring the planner or the page from the planner to the Parent/Carer Consultation Evening as we have no way of keeping a central record of appointments.

As there are no car parking facilities on the school site and roads around the area are extremely busy at times, please give consideration to our neighbours should you need to park within the surrounding area.

If you have any additional requirements e.g. wheelchair access, please contact Pamela Fulton on 01273 545277 or email pamelafulton@varndean.co.uk who will advise accordingly.
