Year 8 Parents Consultation - Friday 11th February


Parents’ Consultation Day

Year 8 Friday, February 11th



 January 27th 2022

Dear Parents


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


As per the school calendar and our letter of January 21st, we will host a Parents’ Consultation Day consisting of 5 minute video appointments with subject teachers for Year 8 students on Friday, February 11th. We are very much looking forward to ‘seeing’ all our students with their parents for this first Parents’ Consultation Day, which will run remotely via the School Cloud system.


Very importantly also, 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 – Mr Dinsdale

Medway – Mrs Baker

Rother – Ms Timmins

Stour – Mrs Woods


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, as well as to discuss next steps to secure the best possible progress in the weeks following the February half-term and up to the end of this school year. All teachers will report to you on your daughter or son’s completion and submission of Homework tasks, which we view as vital to students’ learning and progress.

Bookings will open tomorrow, Friday at midday and remain open until Friday, February 4th at 3pm. It may not be possible to book appointments thereafter.


Friday, February 11th will run with work set in Google Classroom for all students. Students should stick to their normal timetable (as far as appointments allow) and work on those tasks through the day and then submit all work at the end of the day. Teachers will also set Homework Assignments in Google Classroom as per the Homework Timetable. No online live lessons will take place with teachers. No student should attend school on Friday, February 11th.


We are all very much looking forward to meeting you.
