Parents’ Evenings

Parents’ Evenings are a wonderful occasion and a chance for subject staff, parents and pupils to discuss the work being completed in subject areas. They also provide opportunity to consider the progress being made and identify any areas for development. At Great Marlow School we¬†consider it an important step in developing independence and a sense of responsibility in our pupils, to give them control over their own appointments.

Each pupil has a page in their school planner where they can record agreed appointment times with their various subject teachers. During the two weeks preceding the Parents’ Evening, pupils will have the opportunity to arrange appointments with their subject teachers. Sadly, it is not always possible for a subject teacher to agree the specific time requested and in such instances it is a huge help if the pupil has an idea of other times their parent/carer is able to attend. GMS do all that they can to prevent a large waiting time between appointments. Please note, each appointment should last only five minutes.

On occasion, a subject teacher may not have any remaining appointment times that match the times that a parent/carer is able to attend. In this instance, the parent/carer should contact the subject teacher directly, via the school office, in order to discuss their child’s progress and attainment.

It is worth noting that Parents’ Evenings are aimed at discussing attainment and progress in subject areas and that teaching staff with multiple roles, such as form tutors, may not have appointments available to discuss more general or wider matters, and that these queries should be directed to the relevant staff member through the school office.
