An Invitation to Year 7 Parents

 On Tuesday 17 September 2013 we will be holding our ‘Year 7 Curriculum Information Evening’.  The event will begin at 6:30pm and will provide an opportunity for Year 7 parents and students to hear from staff about the core subjects of English, Maths and Science at Key Stage 3.  There will be presentations by Key Stage 3 Leaders for each of these subject areas giving an overview of the courses and sharing the success criteria for the subjects.  They will also talk to parents about how to support students in their learning as they transition into year 7 and beyond.

In addition to presentations from subject areas, there will be information about Personal Development Education (PDE), Extra Curricular activities and the Kite Learning Platform.

Following on from the presentations, there will be an opportunity join us in our IT rooms from 7.30 to 8.00 pm where parents will be able to log on to the Kite Learning platform.  Staff and students will be on hand to help parents find their way around the system and help them understand how to they can use this facility to support their children.  A letter has been sent advising parents of their username and password to access Kite and many of the students will already have been introduced in their IT lessons. 

There will be also be a DVD providing practical advice on the core subjects for you to collect and take home with you.

Please do come along and join us.  This evening is a perfect opportunity to hear what students will be studying in Year 7 and to find out how you can help support their learning. 

We look forward to seeing the year 7 students and their parents.
