Parent-Tutor & Advice Evenings

Throughout the year we invite students and their parents to take part in evenings where they can discuss their progress through Sixth Form and receive feedback and valuable advice on their way forward.

Parent Tutor- Evenings are currently held remotely due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. We will contact parents individually with more details.

Reporting Data

After each assessment point  students will receive a report detailing their grades which will be posted home.

There will be 3 parent-tutor evenings placed throughout the year; the first to discuss students initial progress and how they are coping with A Level courses, the second and third are to give detail on students’ performance in mock exams and revision strategies for the final exams. Please refer to the section at the top of this page for these dates.

 


Intervention

After each assessment point the sixth form staff will be looking at targeting students who are underachieving.

  • support for students who are underachieving
  • personal support for high achieving students if needed
  • use of subject or whole sixth form contracts
  • weekly meetings with designated mentors (and parents if necessary)
  • parental meetings with sixth form staff or teaching staff as appropriate
