Research clearly shows that the most powerful single factor that influences pupil achievement is parental engagement. By working closely with parents we believe that each pupil can be given the best possible start in life.
Our Progress Evenings are not only an opportunity to find out about the progress your children are making at school but also a chance for you to find out how you can work alongside, challenge and support your children in their learning. Parents are also provided with the opportunity to comment on the work of the school at each Progress Evening by means of our parental questionnaire.
Schedule of Progress Evenings for 2017 – 18
Pupils are issued with invitations for parents for each Progress Evening and are asked to make appointments with their teachers. We expect all pupils to be represented at these evenings which all take place in the Sports Hall beginning at 3.45pm and ending at 6.15pm.

Parental Questionnaire Summary
In addition to an annual Progress Evening for every pupil, we provide an additional evening for some year groups as detailed below. The information shared at these evenings is put together to enable each child to fulfil his / her potential and so, again, we would expect every pupil to be represented. Meetings take place in the School Hall and begin at 6.00pm.
