Year 8 Parents and Carers; Changes to calendar dates

Dear Parent/Carer,

Earlier this year we consulted parents of SHS students regarding a change to our Key Stage 3 and 4 arrangements.

The decision has been taken to move to a three year Key Stage 4; which means that students in Year 8 will make their guided pathway choices this summer term.

In order to give staff, students and parents ample opportunity to make fully informed choices, the Year 8 Parents’ Evening will now be held on the evening of May 24th instead of May 3rd.

During the evening there will be the usual parent/ teacher consultation appointments but there will also be several ‘drop-in’ presentations to set the new 3 year Key Stage 4 system in context. Full details will be provided closer to the time.

Students will have had their pathways assembly on May 21st and will have been issued their pathways information booklet to take home and discuss with parents and carers.

The deadline for returns of the pathway choices will then be June 6th.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and carers who took the time to respond to the consultation.
