Year 8 Options Evening Presentation – Tuesday 14 March 2017
7:00pm – 8:00pm in the Main School Hall
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to our Year 8 Options Presentation Evening on Tuesday 14 March at 7:00 pm in the Main School Hall.
As a school we have decided that from September 2017 we are extending the length of time that pupils study the Key Stage 4 Curriculum from two to three years. This is in line with practice at other local schools. It will give our pupils the benefit of extra teaching and learning time to prepare for their important examinations at the end of Key Stage 4, so that they achieve the best grades possible.
The evening will focus briefly on an overview of the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the options process. Miss Gill will also be available during the evening to assist in addressing specific questions related to your child.
I will have already explained the Options process to your son/daughter during assemblies and so it is not fundamental that they accompany you to the meeting. However should they wish to attend with you, they will be most welcome.
Your son/daughter will be issued with the Options Booklet and Options Form in the next few days. I will send a text message home to all Year 8 parents to confirm when this has been sent.
These are the key dates and events that you need to be aware of:
|Year 8 Option Booklets issued – Thursday 9 March 2017.
This will provide pupils and parents with detailed information about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum to assist in the decision making process.
|Year 8 Options Evening Presentation – Tuesday 14 March 2017 7:00pm – 8:00pm in the Main School Hall.|
|Year 8 snapshots will be issued during the week beginning Monday 13 March 2017.
These will give you an up to date review of how your child is performing across the curriculum that will help to guide option choices.
|Last date for return of Option Forms – Tuesday 28 March 2017.|
I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 14 March at 7:00pm. Tea and coffee will be available from 6:30pm.
