Parents of Year 9
Option Process Change of Date for Parents Meeting
Unfortunately, we have had to change the date of the Parents Information Evening about Options to Thursday 23rd March at 6.30 – 7.30pm. I am sorry for this change but hope that you will all still be able to attend.
The meeting will go through the process of picking options step by step. At the end of the session, there is an opportunity to ask questions or stay behind to discuss the process with a member of staff. When the session is completed, the powerpoint presentation will be posted on the school website for you to view. At any time in the process, if you are unsure or want to ask a question, I can be contacted at school.
Tomorrow your child will receive an email copy of your options booklet. There will be printed copies available to borrow for short periods from my office, but we expect most of the children to read them directly from the email.
The process has key dates and deadlines to remember;
|Thursday, 9th March||Email delivery of options booklet
Year 9 Reports to discuss progress with your child.
|Wednesday 15th March||Careers conference (periods 1-3)|
|Thursday 16th March||Year 9 Parents Progress Evening
(You can ask questions to staff about your child’s progress and suitability for a particular choice.)
|Monday 27th March||You will get your options form to complete (but it does not have to be returned until after Easter).|
|Wednesday 19th April||All Option forms to be returned by this date to Mr Edgar in school.|
|Various dates before Easter||Assemblies to go through the process with your child.|
Please remember, that each year the process of picking options is slightly different.
The Options booklet will be available on the website as soon as it is posted to students on 9th March 2017.
Mr T. Edgar
