Academic Review Meetings – Years 7, 8 and 9
Dear Parent / Carer
The Government continues to release further guidance on wider re-opening of schools following the COVID-19 pandemic. You will be aware that we have welcomed back some Year 10 students recently but the Government have said:
‘We are unable to welcome back more children to secondary school at this time, beyond the face-to-face support schools can now offer year 10 and 12 pupils, and provision for vulnerable children and children of critical workers.’
Last week, however, the Department for Education said:
‘We know that secondary schools are keen to invite pupils in other year groups in for a face-to-face meeting before the end of this term, where it would be beneficial. As long as this happens in line with this and wider protective measures guidance, and guidance on the numbers of pupils permitted on-site at any one time, we would encourage this where possible. This time can be used to check-in on pupils, and ensure they are supported before a return to school from September…’
With this in mind, I am delighted to invite you and your child in for an ‘Academic Review Meeting.’ These meetings will happen on the Academy site from Monday 6th July to Wednesday 17th July.
The Parents’ Evening booking system is now open for you to book an appointment at a convenient time. I would urge you to book early to secure your preferred date and time. If you are shielding and would prefer a ‘virtual meeting’ please do contact [email protected] to arrange this.
These meetings will provide an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress before and during the COVID-19 crisis as well as any emotional impact being in lockdown has had on your child or the wider family. It also provides an opportunity to physically reconnect with the Academy before the anticipated return of all students in September.

We look forward to meeting with you.
