Partnership Evenings are our way of keeping in touch with parents and providing an opportunity for us to share useful subject information as well as insight and guidance on a range of educational and pastoral issues.  Normally we would invite you in to meet with us in person, but as we are currently unable to do so, we are bringing the evening to you virtually.

Year 7 have made a superb start to the year and despite all of the change and difficult circumstances regarding Covid 19, they have settled in brilliantly.  Tonight’s presentations will hopefully help you to see how we are currently supporting your child in some of their key subjects. You will also find a few tips on how you can support your child through the next few years too.

This year we are bringing you presentation videos on the following topics:

English Transition from KS2 to KS3 – Click here

Mr Neale, one of our designated safeguarding leads, talks about how you can help keep your child safe online.  Many Year 7s now own their first smartphone and have a lot more online independence, here Mr Neale offers some guidance and support to help you set healthy boundaries at home.

Lottie Hearn, Assistant Headteacher, said: “  Our Partnership Evenings are even more important to us in the current ‘Covid’ climate.  By now, we would normally have had lots of opportunities to get to know parents and carers through the Y7 tutor evening and transition meetings.  This would have been another great opportunity for parents to come in and say hello as well as find out vital information about our school.  We really hope you’ll take the time to have a look at these presentations and find out more about the work we are doing in school with your child”
