Working closely with parents and carers is crucial in ensuring that students achieve their full potential. We provide several opportunities throughout the year for such work to take place.
Heads of Year meet with parents and carers at a Welcome Evening every September. These provide an opportunity for parents and carers to see what activities will take place in the school year, and how best students may approach them. The evenings represent a chance to meet with the Head of Year, teachers and tutors. These meetings take place as an addition to the annual Parents’ Evening, where a student’s progress may be discussed in detail with teachers.
Additionally, targeted groups of parents may be invited to school to work with our Community Coordinator or other teaching staff in support of student’s achievement.
Parents and carers receive a progress report periodically, giving current and previous levels or grades in every subject. This allows parents and carers to track and monitor their daughter’s progress on a termly basis. A full school report is written annually, detailing attainment and progress for the year.
We encourage parents and carers to register for both SIMS ‘In Touch’ and text alerts. ‘In Touch’ is a useful tool which allows us to provide parents and carers with up-to-date news about the school. We are also able to email newsletters and letters regarding any trips or events that have been organised. Text alerts go straight to mobile phones and are useful for quick reminders and alerts.
