Appointments for parents evening are usually only 5 minutes long. Whilst you are of course welcome to discuss specific issues at a follow-up appointment, it is important that you as parents get the most from this session. To help there is a booklet that was published some years ago by the DFES (the old name for DFE) to help parents gain the most from these meetings. Some national information within this booklet has changed but still has some important messages and ideas.
As a school we aim for you to leave the brief meeting with a clear overview of how your child is progressing, whether there are any barriers to their learning and how the school and you can help your child to make further progress. The meeting will focus largely on literacy, numeracy and how settled they are/attitude to work & school. At parents evening you will receive a Termly Progress Report that outlines the next steps of learning in these areas. If you require more time to discuss a particular issue you are strongly encouraged to make a further appointment with your child's teacher on another day. We have put together a booklet to explain the Termly Report which will be given on the evening.
