Year 7 Parent/Tutor Afternoon 2021

Published on 15th October 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

We hope your child has enjoyed their first weeks at Fernwood School – we are certainly enjoying getting to know your child/children as they are showing their enthusiasm, motivation, and determination to celebrate their talents and achievements.

As you will be aware from the school calendar we have an important Parent/Tutor afternoon on Tuesday 9th November. In order to support the whole school community we plan to host this event virtually via ePraise. Attached with this letter is a reminder of how to sign up to ePraise, This will ensure that all parents/carers can make a 10 minute appointment with their child’s tutor to talk about how their child has settled in. (If you have not already signed up to ePraise please do follow the steps from the ePraise reminder to sign up by Friday¬† 29th October)

To allow this Year 7 Parent/Tutor afternoon to happen, all Year 7 pupils will return home at 1.10pm at the end of the morning session on Tuesday 9th November. As mentioned, at the Parent/Tutor afternoon which runs from 1.30 – 6.30 pm you will have the opportunity to make a 10 minute virtual meeting via ePraise to talk to your child’s tutor about how your child has settled in the tutor group, and how they have adapted to their new lessons and routines at Fernwood.

Appointments can be made with your child’s tutors from 1.30 pm – 6.30 pm. Other key staff – Mr Walker – Pastoral Leader Year 7, Mrs Churchward – Assistant Pastoral Leader Year 7, and Mrs Morrill, Assistant Headteacher and Senior Leader link for Year 7 will also be available.

Thanks in advance for your support in this matter and we look forward to working with you and “seeing you” virtually on Tuesday 9th November. We will send a message to alert you to the ePraise Parent/Tutor afternoon/evening booking system being open in the first week back after half term (w/c the 1st November)

Also forwarded alongside this letter is a guide to making appointments – please follow this when booking an appointment with your child’s/children’s tutor(s).

If you have any questions in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us in school.

Yours sincerely

Mrs M Morrill
