Year 8 Parents Evening

Posted in: News Archive

 Dear Parent/Carer

 Re: Year 8 Parents Evening – Thursday 8 November 2012 -5pm-8pm

This evening is of vital importance and will support your son/daughter to achieve their monitoring grade at this crucial time. You will also have the opportunity to speak to subject teachers about your son/daughter’s current progress following the issue of the Year 8 reports and receive information regarding current progress and ways to support.

Your son/ daughter’s report will show those members of staff who have requested to meet with you on this evening and will be indicated with a # symbol.

There are four ways for parents to arrange an appointment with teachers for parents evening:


  1. The most effective way is to use the school VLE and email a teacher. Visit and click on the Parents Portal.

      -> Log in using your unique username and password

      -> My Children -> Choose which child from the drop down list

                  (if you have more than one student at the school).

      -> Teachers Tab

     -> Click on the teacher’s name to get email address


  1. Phone (this is the most difficult way as staff are working with students during the school day)


  1. Direct email to Heads of Department- please check school website at Home then Contact Us.


  1. Your son/ daughter can make appointments on your behalf. Please would you indicate on the form below which teachers you would like to see. Your son/daughter should then take the form to the subject teachers you have indicated on the form, to make an appointment on your behalf. The appointments will be then be recorded using the appointment form on page 116 of their student diary.

The school views this as an important opportunity for you to gather information that will enable your son/daughter to achieve the best results they can and for us to answer any questions you may have.


Yours sincerely


Ms J Cassidy

Deputy Head teacher

Longhill Parents’ Evening all staff who teach your daughter/son are available for five minute interviews.  (Longer interviews can be arranged for other times if you so wish).  It is important for the smooth running of the evening that all interviews are kept to a maximum of 5 minutes.


Please ask your daughter/son to list below the subjects she/he takes and their teaching staff.  Will you please then indicate, by signature, in the final column, those staff you wish to see.  Your daughter/son will then make these appointments on your behalf.  Clearly with the number of parents wanting interviews the exact times will have to be finalised between your daughter/son and the staff concerned and you should leave enough time between interviews to move around the building.
