Preparation is Key for Parent Teacher Conference

20 January 2016

On Tuesday 2 February and Thursday 4 February, we will be holding our mid-year Parent Teacher Conferences at school which you should already have had information about booking an appointment for.  

  • Parent Teacher Conference

This is an important event in the school’s calendar as it gives you an opportunity to catch up with your child’s class teacher. You have the opportunity to share information about how they are progressing and also about how they are developing as learners.  In Year 3-6, you will have a chance to speak to the Maths teacher this time.

In Key Stage 2, we welcome the children to this meeting if you feel this will be beneficial.  Some parents like that opportunity and others prefer to have a private conversation with the teacher – it just depends on what you wish to discuss.

Before the meeting I would suggest is a good time to casually speak to your child about school.  What do they like about school? What are they good at? What do they need help with? The insight you bring is often very useful and appreciated by the teachers in forming a whole picture of a child. It means also that the conversation you have helps partnership working through shared understanding.

At the meeting, you will have a chance to look at your child’s work and take it home to discuss it with them.  This is an ideal opportunity to praise your child for their progress and efforts and encourage them in any areas of development. Young children are delighted to share their work with you and usually so proud of their achievements. They thrive on being able to show you how clever they are – it is a special moment. Older children can however be less keen! However, please take this opportunity as it reinforces your interest in their progress and your support for their success. It does make them feel more secure, confident and motivates them to do well.

Please bear in mind that teachers are asked to keep to timings so that later parents are also seen promptly. Your appointment will be for 10 minutes, but you are free to arrange another meeting at any time if necessary. Parents are kindly requested to bring a translator if required. However, if you find this difficult please email Echo Li ec-li@bisspuxi.com">here.

Educational research shows that parental involvement in children’s learning is a key indicator for future success.  Please take full advantage of the session to help support your child.
