Dear Parents and Carers,

Autumn Term Parent Consultation Evening - Monday 12th & Thursday 15th October 

Teachers are looking forward to parent consultation telephone calls over the next few weeks. You will have the opportunity to speak with your child’s new class teacher and find out how they have settled so far this year. You should already have received the pupil passport which will inform you of the end of year expectations for your child’s year group. If you have any questions regarding these expectations you can ask your child’s class teacher during the call. The teachers will also explain the expectations for the end of the year for your child. You will have received confirmation from the class teachers regarding your call time.

You will then be asked to pre register and create an account using your email address and your child's full school register name.

By pre registering, when the photos are ready you will receive an automatic email notification to inform you, your child's photos are ready to be viewed and purchased.

All orders will be sent to your home address free of charge for a 2 week window.
