Dear Parent/Guardian of Year 9

As you are aware, we are currently working with our Year 9 students to support them to make their KS4 options choices ready to start their new courses at the start of Year 10. As part of this process, we would like to hold a meeting with you and your child to discuss their planned choices. We feel that this is very important as we want to ensure that your child has considered all their options, made a broad and balanced choice whilst keeping in mind any future plans that they have related to careers and further educational aspirations.

We would like to offer some flexibility in the way that we hold these meetings in order to make it possible for all parents to attend and support their child. For this reason, we will be offering both face to face appointments in school and also some video or telephone meetings.

Booking a Face to Face Meeting

This email explains the process for those parents who wish to book a face to face meeting in school to discuss their child’s options. There will be 6 members of the Senior leadership team available to lead these meetings in the week beginning Monday 29th January. You will be able to book an appointment of your choice either during the school day, or in the earlier evening via our School Cloud booking system and then you will attend in person at school at your appointment time.

Booking a video or telephone appointment.

If you are not able to attend in person and would prefer either a video or telephone meeting, then we will share details of how to book these soon. The telephone and video appointments will take place prior to half term.

Please follow the link below to book a face to face appointment during the week beginning Monday 29th January

It would be really helpful if both pupils and their parent/guardian have considered the information available on the school website or via google classroom about the options subjects available prior to the meeting so that we can answer all your questions efficiently.

The options information can be found from this link:

You will get a separate link to book appointments for Year 9 Parents’ Evening later in this half term.
