Parents’ & Curriculum Evenings

At The Hamble School we believe that working in partnership with parents and carers is fundamental to the achievement of our students. With this in mind, we offer a range of parents’ and curriculum information evenings throughout the year.

Parents’ and carers’ evenings

Each year group has one parents’ and carers’ evening with parents and carers of Year 11 students getting an additional opportunity to talk to their children’s teachers. Parents’ and carers’ evenings consist of short, focused appointments with teachers in order to discuss their progress. The teachers will be able to summarise progress and will be able to offer advice and guidance on how each child can improve their performance. Parents and carers are always encouraged to attend all evenings and making appointments is made simple through our online booking system.

Year 11 Revision Resources

If your son or daughter would like some help and guidance with revision, please do watch this video which will take them through different revision techniques.

Curriculum and information evenings are designed to give parents and carers information that is relevant to them and their child given their age and year group.

Examples of curriculum evenings include:

  • Year 7 Meet the Tutor evening where parents and carers can meet the key person who will be their main point of contact throughout their child’s schooling.
  • Year 8 Preferences Evening that gives parents, carers and their children a chance to talk to staff and explore the best Key Stage 4 preference subjects for them.
  • Raising Attainment Evenings where parents and carers can receive information about curriculum and qualifications, how to succeed in their studies and other important advice and guidance. Parents and carers can learn revision strategies alongside their children and gain important knowledge and understanding about our intervention programmes, revision classes, targeted support, revision resources and organisation.

Attendance at Parents’ and Carers’ evenings

We will always welcome you on our formal occasions and always make staff available at these evenings for more ad hoc questions and queries to ensure we give you as much support as possible. We do, however, welcome communication and contact at times outside of these formal occasions; simply telephone or email to arrange to speak to either your child’s tutor or class teacher in the first instance.

Our evidence shows that high levels of engagement from parents have a huge impact on student achievement.
