To parents of students in Year 11 – a date for your diaries
We invite you to attend an information evening here at Thomas Aveling School on Thursday 30th March from 6pm to 7pm. On this evening we will be sharing advice on how you can best support your son/daughter through the examination period. We will be covering a range of topics all geared around how you as parents can best support them through the GCSEs. Whilst there are inevitably certain things that only their teachers can help with, there are many things that you as parents can do to help, including a range of excellent online resources which you may not yet be aware of.
We ran a similar evening last year which was really well attended by over 150 parents and we are now offering the same opportunity to parents of this year’s Year 11.
Part of the evening will be presented by a representative from a company called ‘Elevate’ (www.elevateeducation.com) who next week will deliver a presentation for the students explaining how they can best prepare in the remaining weeks. We recently saw someone from Elevate address a group of parents at a similar evening in another school; they were very impressive and the parents there took a great deal from the evening so we have employed them to do the same here.
We would urge you to attend this evening if you can. Your son/daughter should attend with you if possible.
We will contact you again with more information nearer the time, but for now please make a note of the date so that someone can definitely attend.
