Reports and Parents' Evenings

Close relationships between parents and staff are essential if we are to achieve the best for the students. We are an ‘open’ school and try to be responsive to the views of parents and those in the wider community.

In addition to conventional Parents’ Evenings, we hold a number of ‘Consultation Evenings’ where we target issues of particular interest, such as transition from primary to secondary school, 14 or 16 options, and making applications for higher education. We also try to provide a forum where parents can raise their own issues via the King's Parents' Voice, and Senior staff visit Garrison areas on a regular basis.
 
We monitor the students’ progress regularly as we believe that rewarding good progress and eliminating underachievement can only be achieved by identifying how well the students are working. All students receive an extended report. Additionally we monitor progress at various times through the year and we produce a short ‘progress report’ on the effort, behaviour and achievement of the student at that time. We also encourage parents to attend consultation evenings. Each year group has one formal consultation per year when parents are invited to meet with Form Tutors. The annual plan is as follows:
