Parent/Teacher Consultations

Parents' Evenings are held three times a year and are a chance for you and the your child's teacher to talk about their progress in the classroom and any other issues that may be causing a concern. 

A lot of parents worry about what to ask at Parents' Evening, so we have some questions below that you may like to ask your child's teacher.

  • Is my child happy at school when he/she is learning?
  • Do they join in the lessons?
  • How does my child learn best?
  • Does my child ask for help when stuck or having problems with the work?
  • Compared to the national average, how are they doing academically?
  • What does my child need extra help in?
  • How can I help my child at home?

 

You may also wish to ask questions about your child's behaviour in school. You know their behaviour better than anyone but sometimes their behaviour is different in school. Does their behaviour sound like them?

  • Does my child get easily distracted or do they distract others?
  • Does my child follow the rules when playing games or do they make up their own?
  • How does my child sit when they are learning, do they chat, sit quietly or play around?
  • Does my child have friends?
  • When they are near/with other children at break-time do they play with the children or by themselves?
  • How does my child react when they are told that they have done something wrong or the work is wrong?
