Parental Engagement Evening - Tuesday 24th October, 3.30-6.30pm

Dear Parent/Carer

For the 2017-18 academic year, we have moved away from the traditional parents’ evening model to a new system that we hope will eliminate some of its problems without sacrificing its benefits.

This year, we have introduced Parental Engagement Evenings. These will happen every 4 weeks during term time, and there will be 9 opportunities for you to attend over the academic year. Each of these evenings will be open to parents/carers of children in all year groups.

What are the benefits of the new system?

  • Parents/carers can see teachers at several points throughout the year, rather than waiting for one designated evening

  • Parents/carers have more flexibility to make appointments when it is convenient for them

  • Parents/carers will be able to see teachers of children in different year groups on one occasion

  • Teachers will be able to request to see parents/carers as the need arises, rather than having to wait for a specific year group evening

You can find the dates/times of the remaining evenings this academic year below:

Our next Parental Engagement Evening is on Tuesday 24th October from 3.30 – 6.30pm in the ELC (E-Learning Zone). The college uses an online appointment booking system. Please visit https://lutterworthcollege1.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your appointments if you would like to attend this evening. The booking system for this evening will open to all parents at 9am on Tuesday 10th October, and parents/carers will be able to book in to see the teachers with whom they'd like to meet. You will understand that, as some staff teach up to 400 students, it may not always be possible to secure an appointment on a given evening. To ensure as many parents as possible are able to attend, we would ask that if your child has more than one teacher for a subject you only book with one of your child’s teachers and not both. The booking system for this evening will close to all parents at 12pm on Monday 23rd October.

To book your son/daughter’s appointments you will need to log in with the following information:

  • Your Surname and First Name (if this does not work please use your initial instead of your First Name)

  • Student’s Surname and First Name

  • Student’s Date of Birth

A short guide on how to book appointments can be accessed by clicking here. If you are having any problems with logging on to the system, please contact the school reception. If you do not have access to the internet, please contact the school reception who will be happy to add appointments on your behalf.

As always, if there is an urgent concern, do not feel you have to wait until the next Parental Engagement Evening. Contact the school as soon as you can so that we can address the issue immediately.

We hope that all parents/carers will attend at least one of these evenings per year, but you are welcome to attend more often should the need arise to meet with a specific teacher. On your arrival at the Parental Engagement Evening, please follow signs to the ELC (E-Learning Centre) and sign in at the desk.

Kind regards,

Michelle Hadley                             

Assistant Headteacher
