Years 11 & 13 Parents Consultation Day on Friday, March 31st




Years 11 & 13 Parents’ Consultation Day on Friday, March 31st

Dear Parents

Thank you for your continued support of the school and your daughter or son. 

As per our school calendar, we will host a Parents’ Subject Consultation Day consisting of 5 minute video appointments with subject teachers for Years 11 & 13 students on Friday, March 31st. We are very much looking forward to ‘seeing’ all our students with their parents. The Parents’ Consultation Day will run remotely with the School Cloud system.

Parents and students will have the opportunity to meet with their Academy Guidance Manager to discuss their daughter or son’s daily school life:

Eden – Mrs Foster

Medway – Mrs Baker

Rother – Ms Timmins

Stour – Mrs Woods

Sixth Form – Ms Hoy

In addition, for relevant parents there will be the opportunity to meet with our SENCO, Mr Simpson and Assistant SENCO, Mrs Negus as well our Learning Support Assistant colleagues, who support students in classrooms or the Michael Palin Centre.

The appointments will give students and parents the opportunity to take stock of learning in school since September and to discuss next steps to secure the best possible performance in Public Examinations. Teachers will give revision tips and show you revision materials, which will be posted in Google Classroom for the Easter holiday.

Every student should now have designed their own revision programme. If your daughter or son has not, please ensure they do. And if they are finding difficulty with planning their revision, please let us know, so we can support with this.

Bookings will open tomorrow, Tuesday and remain open until Wednesday, March 29th at 3pm. It may not be possible to book appointments thereafter.

Friday, March 31st will run with work set in Google Classroom for all students. Students should stick to their normal timetable and work on those tasks through the day and submit all assignments at the end of the day. Teachers will also set Homework Assignments in Google Classroom as per the Homework Timetable. No live online lessons will take place with teachers. No student should attend school on Friday, March 31st.
