S1 Parents’ Evening

Several parents have asked why the s1 parents’ evening is held so early on in the year. It seems that, some years ago, the parents requested an early meeting so that they knew who would be teaching their children and how the children were progressing before too much time had passed.

However, some parents are not too happy with this arrangement. The children have not met all their teachers so early on in the year, and there is a wait of about 18 months before the next parents’ evening. They would prefer a meeting in the summer term, when all the teachers have had chance to get to know the children thoroughly.

What are your views? Do you like the current arrangement or would you like it to be changed? Let us know your views and we can present them to the school. You can submit a comment to this article.

Thanks.
