Dear Parents/Carers,

We would like to invite you to attend our Parents and Carers’ Consultation Evening, to take place onsite at LAB on Thursday 25th April from 16:00-19:00. This is an important evening and provides you with an opportunity to speak with your child’s teachers about both their academic progress and their attitude to learning across the curriculum.

Please be mindful that there is no parking available on site and all those attending are encouraged to travel by public transport. If you choose to drive and park nearby, please respect our neighbours by parking safely on adjacent roads.

Bookings are available through our app MyChildAtSchool (MCAS). Please do click on the following link for further information about how to use this booking system:

Book appointments here

If you encounter any issues, please do contact the main office in the first instance.

Appointments can be made from 09:00am on Thursday 18th April and will close at 17:00 on Wednesday 24th April. Please do not attempt to book appointments earlier than the advertised date as the system will not save them.

Please note that, although we would wish for all parents and carers to have the opportunity to consult with every single one of their children’s teachers, we also recognise that certain members of staff see a large number of year 8 students, and that it is not always possible, therefore, for them to meet with everybody. If you do wish to speak to a particular teacher who is not available, please do email them so that this can be arranged for another time.

Finally, we expect a high number of parents and carers to attend, so please respect the 5 minute appointment slots and move swiftly between meetings so that everyone has the opportunity to meet with their child’s teachers.

Yours faithfully,

Mr D Morrison
Deputy Principal
