Approximately 65 parents attended our New Curriculum Evening today. After refreshments and a brief introduction to the principles behind the curriculum and its assessment, parents moved to classes to learn more about how it applied to their child. Those parents present found the evening extremely helpful and supportive – especially the opportunity to have their questions answered in an honest and straightforward manner. One parent said, “Thank you, that was actually the most useful and informative 90 minutes that I have spent in school!” A compliment indeed. Thank you.
Parents attending were given a summary of the main points as well as helpful sheets of subject and year specific ‘I can’ statements that not only inform them what their children will be covering, but that are used in order to informally assess children’s progress in order to address ‘gaps’. This session was a ‘one-off’, however if you have not already received copies of the paperwork from your child’s class, please call in and collect it.
