Reports and consultation evenings
11th April 2019
Please find enclosed your child’s report.
As you will see, we are beginning to refine the format of the reports. Following the consultation with staff and parents we have created a new report layout which will provide you with more information about your child’s progress at Christ Church Academy. We aim to have the finalised new report to be in use by the summer term.
The biggest change at the moment is the introduction of the revised targets – there will only be data in this column if your child has already met their target for the year.
From this point onwards we will be trialling Parents’ Evenings for individual year groups to allow you access to more staff to discuss your child’s progress. Therefore, we will be holding the following consultation evenings:
Year 5 – Tuesday 30th April 2019 between 4.00pm and 6.30pm
Year 6 – Wednesday 1st May 2019 between 4.00pm and 6.30pm
Year 7 and Year 8 – Tuesday 4th June 2019 between 4.00pm and 6.30pm
These evenings are an opportunity for parents to meet both subject and pastoral staff to discuss progress. Please note that a form tutor will only be able to discuss pastoral care as opposed to academic progress. Each appointment will be a 5-minute slot. Please only book one appointment if you have the same teacher for more than one subject.
As always, if you have a concern which is more detailed than this time slot will allow, please contact the member of staff and arrange an appointment outside of Parents’ Evening.
Appointments for Parents’ Evening can be made online at https://christchurch.parentseveningsystem.co.uk or can be accessed via the quick links on the school website. Appointments should be made with the teacher for each subject that has been teaching your child this term. If the system does not automatically show this teacher you can add them to make an appointment. The bookings for the Year 5 and Year 6 evenings will open on Thursday 11th April 2019 and close on Monday 29th April at 17:00. We will send a letter regarding the Year 7 and Year 8 consultation evening nearer the time.
If you would like to see Mr Stubbs for Science please use Mrs Wall’s slots. Unfortunately Mr Wall will not be available.
If you have any queries regarding this please contact the school.
