RE: Lower Sixth Parent Consultation – Wednesday, 31st March 2021
I do hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well. I would like to take this opportunity to say how happy we are to have our students back in College. Their behaviour has been exemplary since we resumed full face-to-face teaching and they seem pleased to back. Please continue to access the many resources on our website, which are regularly refreshed and provide up-to-date information and support for every student and their parents/carers.
As part of our continuing support we will be holding a virtual Lower Sixth Parent Consultation Day on Wednesday, 31st March 2021. This will be an opportunity for you to speak with teachers to talk about how your child progressed during the lockdown and how they have adapted to being back on site.
All appointments will be conducted using Microsoft Teams or via phone. The teacher will contact you at the agreed time. There will be no face-to-face appointments on site.
There will not be any lessons on this day and my expectation is that every Lower 6th student attends each of their subject appointments.
Please ask your child to make a 5-minute appointment with each of their teachers and they should then let you know as parents/carers the appointment times they have arranged. Students should ensure that appointments are not so close together that they risk overlapping.
In order to support you with the consultation, I have added some prompts/questions, at the end of this letter, which you may find useful to ask the teachers. These are a guide and not prescriptive.
I hope that you will find this a useful process in supporting your child’s progress,
Thank you for your continued support
