Balshaw’s Church of England High School

Year 9 Parents' Evening - Thursday 12th April starting at 4.00 pm

12 April 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

Year 9 Parents' Evening is on Thursday 12th April starting at 4.00 pm. Your son/daughter has a page in their School Planner to make appointments and teachers will be looking to make these appointments over the coming days in the lead up to Parents' Evening. Parental attendance is encouraged as it helps to give you an indication as to how your child is doing at Balshaw's. Can we ask you please to encourage your child to make appointments and we look forward to seeing you on the evening.

Options Forms
The deadline for handing in Options forms will remain as Monday 12th March, as it has been clear that in the vast majority of cases, from interviews conducted with students that preferences have been largely decided. This will allow the school to process these forms and determine important aspects of the school curriculum planning for 2018-19.

However, due to the current circumstances with regard to the rearranged Parents' Evening, if some students wish to hold back their preferences until the 12th April and the re-scheduled Parents' Evening or at least until they have been able to speak further with a teacher about a particular subject, that is absolutely fine. (This may be the case with reference to students' D&T option)

If you have any questions with regard to the process or the above information, please do not hesitate to contact me in school.

Kind regards,
Mr Morgan - Deputy Headteacher
