Tutor Review Day 22 November 2017

October 2017

Dear Parent/Carer


We are holding our first Tutor Review Day on Wednesday 22 November 2017. Appointments are available between 12 noon and 6.30pm.

We operate the online Parents Evening Booking system and this allows parents and carers to choose or alter a pre-booked appointment with staff.

Year 11 Pupils
If you have a child in Year 11, they will have an appointment with a designated Head of Learning Zone/Leader of Learning rather than their Personal Learning Tutor. This enables you to discuss your child’s progress with an experienced leader who can offer a bespoke package of support. Appointment times will be made for each child. Once the appointment has been made you will receive an email from the Parents Evening booking system with your appointment time and name of the teacher.  If you would like to change your appointment time please contact school or alternatively your child can call into the general office to change.

Year’s 7 to 10 Pupils
The booking system will be available from 9.00am on Monday 30 October 2017. The system will temporarily close on Wednesday 15 November 2017 between 9.00am and 1.00pm, and pupils without an appointment will have one assigned. The system will re-open on the same day from 1.00pm and you will be able to change appointments if required. The system will finally close on Monday 20 November 2017.

Please visit http://www.oakwood.ac/review day to book your appointments. Login with the following information:

Child’s First Name:      Forename
Child’s Surname:         Surname
Child’s Date of Birth:   Date of Birth

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact us and we will be happy to add appointments on your behalf (01709 512222).

Your child must bring their iPad/Chrome book for the meeting. The meeting is expected to last 15 minutes, with a short presentation by your child, and the discussion will focus on your child’s progress. As you will appreciate these meetings are important, therefore, we expect that every pupil attends with a parent/carer or family member. There will be no lessons on Review Day as school will be open for individual review meetings only. Attendance will be recorded and will contribute to your child’s pastoral data. On this day we expect pupils to work at home on homework, revision or coursework.

Tutor Review Day will then be followed by Parents Evening on:-

Tuesday 28 November for Y9, Y10 and Y11 
Tuesday 5 December for Y7 and Y8

Any requests by teachers to see your child will be recorded on Go4Schools. You can access this at any time. You can make Parents Evening bookings at Tutor Review Day with staff in the dining from 12 noon and you can book via the Parents Evening Booking system on Wednesday 23 November 2017.

Yours faithfully

Simon Willey
Assistant Headteacher
