Year 7 Parent Evening – Thursday 23 June 2022

Online Appointment Booking System

 You are invited to our Year 7 parent evening which is being held in the main hall on Thursday 23 June 2022 between 4.00 – 7.00pm. The purpose of the evening is to give you the opportunity to come into school to meet your child’s teachers to discuss progress and development.  The evening also allows the opportunity for concerns to be voiced.  This is a critical meeting and we urge you to book an appointment.

Once again, we will be using our online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments.

Appointments can now be made and will close on Thursday 23 June 2022 at 12 noon.  Should you wish to make any changes after this date please contact the school office. To book your appointments go to the Parent section of our website where you will find a tab for Parent Evening.  If you do not have access to the internet please contact the school office (01473 466105 or 466142) and they will be happy to create appointments on your behalf.

As explained in an assembly with Mr Hawkes before Easter, all Year 7 students will be taking Progress Review Examinations (PREs) in the core subjects of English, maths and science.  The PREs are between 1hr and 1hr 30mins and they will be taken in the Sports Hall under exam conditions. PREs of this nature take place every year for all year groups and they are designed to prepare students for when they take their final exams in Year 11 and encourage them to practice revision techniques to consolidate their learning and memory.

  • English PRE – P5 on Monday 20 June for 1h (students will leave school a little later than normal)
  • Maths PRE – P3 on Thursday 23 June for 1h30
  • Science PRE – P5 on Thursday 23 June for 1h (if the exam starts later than 13:50, students will be dismissed later than 14:50

We know that you will want to come to this very important evening in order to discuss your child’s progress.  Thank you for your support and assistance and we look forward to seeing you.
