Meet the Tutor Evening

Meet the Tutor Evening

The annual Meet the Tutor evening at Halewood Academy in September provides an opportunity for parents/carers to speak to their child’s form tutor in regards to their progress, achievement and attitude to learning (ATL.) The feedback for the event from parents/carers and staff during the event was extremely positive and some comments were made on how well the event was organised, all parents/carers felt the event was  beneficial especially for our new Year 7 cohort to see how their child has settled so far into the Academy. The majority of parent/carers of our current year 11 students felt the event was a wonderful opportunity to support their child further during their final examination year. Further positive feedback was made with prefects during the evening and how they were excellent role models for the Academy throughout the evening. One staff member who teaches a year 7 form group commented the event was “A lovely opportunity to begin dialogue with parents/carers about their child for the future.”

During the evening, we asked parents/carers on how the event could be improved further and from this, you said you would like a ticket system so that each parent/carer could see the form tutor in a more structured format. From 2019, we will ensure that a system is implemented for future Meet the Tutor meetings.

You also stated that in each year group form tutor meetings layout were slightly different. We will meet with staff across the Academy and the progress leaders of each year group to formalise the layout to ensure there is consistency.

You also stated that you would like more knowledge of up and coming events including parent forums so that we can continue to develop our partner partnership. For the next event, advertisements will be placed in the newsletter, all social media on the website and some parents/carers contacted directly.

Thank you for your attendance to the event, your feedback and support is greatly appreciated in improving our parent partnership.
