Upcoming School Events

Year 7 Parents’ Evening
Nov 21 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Dear Parents/Carers


I want to write to you personally to invite you to your child’s first Parents’ Evening here
at Arts and Media School, which will be held on Thursday 21 November 5pm – 7.00
This first Parents’ Evening is particularly important for a number of reasons, not least to
mark and review how well your son or daughter has coped with their transition from
primary to secondary school – a most significant moment in their lives.

At the beginning of the evening you will be given a report which summarises your
child’s learning and next steps; you will be able to meet all of their teachers to discuss
their progress.

I will be available to discuss any wider issues that you may have that are not restricted
to tutors or subject teachers and very much look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,

Phoebe McHale
Head of Year 7
