Tutor Review Day Tuesday 26th March 2019

February 2019

Dear Parent/Carer


We are holding our second Tutor Review Day Tuesday 26 March 2019. 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 an appointment time or alter a pre-booked appointment.

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 the same as the November 2018 Review day.  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 8.00am on Wednesday 13 February 2019. The system will temporarily close on Tuesday 19 March 2019 between 8.00am 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 Friday 22 March 2019.

Please visit www.oakwood.ac/review day to book your appointments. 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 2 April 2019, 4.00pm-7.00pm.  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 hall from 12 noon and you can book via the Parents Evening Booking system from 8.00am on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

Yours faithfully
Simon Willey
Assistant Headteacher
