Thursday 30 March and Friday 31 March 2017
In 2007 we piloted a new programme to raise academic achievement called Academic Counselling. This programme had a significant effect on the progress of our students and their overall achievement. Thus we have continued with this programme. The programme involves every student developing a long term (5 year) Personal Education Plan and a medium term (1 year) Personal Educational Plan (PEP). This plan will contain goals, course plans and academic targets. Each student will be interviewed during the year by their academic counsellor, usually their Dean, to help develop and monitor the PEP.
Part of this programme involves strengthening the partnership and improving communication between home and school. An important aspect of this is the parent-teacher-student interview. Over the last five years we have been delighted that an average of 75% of our parents came to interviews. The feedback from all has been enthusiastically positive. Many parents have continued contact during the year with their child’s form tutor. We are especially keen to meet the parents of Year 9 students but encourage all parents to attend and are looking forward to meeting you again.
This year we will be holding the interviews in Week 9, Term 1, which will be Thursday 30 March and Friday 31 March 2017. We request that all parents, and their son or daughter, take part in this important meeting about their child’s academic plans and progress.
A letter has been posted which explains the process in more detail. Please read it carefully. Your child’s tutor teacher will also be contacting you about confirming your interview time.
We look forward to meeting with you and your child.
