Dear Parents & Carers,

Our Open Evenings for this term are on Wednesday 23rd October from 3.30-6.00pm and Thursday 24th October from 5.00-8pm.

We have had an increasing number of parents who request their allocated time to be made outside of the specified Open Evening times. Unless there are exceptional reasons as to why you cannot attend either of these dates, it is expected that you will make an appointment on the given days.

If you would like to make an appointment to see your child’s teacher/s please complete the attached form. Please tick all of the time slot boxes that you are able to attend as this gives staff maximum flexibility in their allocation of appointments Please return the form to the school office by 9am Monday 14th October. As usual, appointments will last for ten minutes. Please do not arrive without an appointment time as staff will not be able to slot you in.

Whilst I appreciate that from the parents’ perspective, Open Evenings inherently run late, I would be grateful if you could make every effort to arrive on time. The purpose of these interviews, by nature of their time limit, is meant to be a resume of your child’s progress in class. Should you or the classteacher have any issues that cannot be dealt with in this forum it may be appropriate to make a further appointment. With this borne in mind, running to schedule will hopefully be more achievable.

It is often difficult for us, with the time available, to accommodate both parents, where they are separated. Wherever possible we would appreciate it, if parents, in these circumstances, would make every effort to share the same appointment.

The nature of the evening means that we prefer children not to attend. We would be grateful for your co-operation in this.

You will be notified of your appointment time nearer the day.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Hurwood
Headteacher
