Reports / Formal Parent-Teacher Meetings
Pupils are sent home with two formal reports each academic year: one at the start of the Spring Term and another at the end of the academic year.
Formal parent meetings with class teachers are held in the Spring Term, the times being arranged directly between teacher and parent. These meetings provide an opportunity for parents to ask any questions about their son or daughter’s progress. Parents are also welcome to make contact with the staff at any time should they wish to discuss anything problematic with their child. Parents are advised to make a special arrangement for such a meeting if only to ensure that the member of staff is free and available.
Throughout the year children will be set various different tests and examinations. Generally speaking these take place just before Christmas in the Autumn Term and the week before half term in the Summer Term. However, pupils in KS1, tend to do a wide variety of modular tests which will take place at the end of a unit of study. The entrance examinations for local Senior Schools usually take place during the beginning of the Spring Term; consequently there are special meetings for Year 6 parents concerning these examinations during the Autumn Term. Parents of Year 6 pupils are responsible for ensuring they have entered their child for the senior school of their choice.
