Parents’ Evening

At St. Julian’s Primary, we believe children make the most progress when parents and teachers work closely together. We will keep you informed about your child’s progress in a variety of ways throughout the school year. We invite parents to make an appointment to meet with their child’s teacher at any point during the year should they be concerned about their child’s progress, but have two formal parents’ evenings each academic year.

Autumn Parents’ Evening

Parents are offered a 10-minute appointment at the end of September to meet their child’s new teacher. The following things will usually be discussed:

  • How your child is settling into their new class
  • General progress in English, Maths and Thematic work
  • Child’s targets for learning
  • Class routines eg. PE days, homework etc.
  • Any questions you may have

Spring Parents’ Evening

At the end of February or beginning of March, parents are offered a second 10-minute appointment to meet with their child’s teacher. The following things will be discussed:

  • Progress in English, Spelling, Maths, Times Tables and Thematic Work
  • Progress towards learning targets (shared in previous meeting)
  • Child’s current targets for learning
  • Homework
  • Any questions you may have
  • Transition to Comprehensive School (Y6 Only)
  • A chance to look through your child’s school books

Booking an appointment for Parents’ Evening

When a Parents’ Evening is approaching, parents will usually be notified in our school newsletter and also via text message at least one month before the event. Appointments can either be made online or via the school office. The booking system will usually go live two weeks before the Parents’ Evenings take place and parents will receive a letter with an event code and instructions on how to make a booking. Parents will also receive a text message with a direct link to the booking system. Please note that you will not be able to access the booking system until it goes live two weeks prior to the parents’ evening taking place.
