Parental Partnership Day

This day is an opportunity for Parents/Carers to meet with your child’s form tutor to discuss their academic progress to date and their targets for the coming year. We have renamed the day ‘Parental Partnership Day’ as it better reflects the relationship the school has with our families and how, together, we can ensure every child reaches their potential.

 The form tutor will discuss your child’s latest report and suggest key areas for improvement for the coming year. You will also have the opportunity to talk about how best to support at home and to discuss any concerns you may have, in or out of school. Meeting the tutor in Year 7 will be a vital conversation to ensure the best possible start to your child’s education at The Billericay School. Year 8 and 9 both involve GCSE/Vocational Option Choices and year 10 and 11 are exam years. Meeting together at the beginning of the academic year really helps your child make the best possible start to each new stage. Every year is important and there will be many different key events for your diary.

In order to facilitate this day, the school will not operate normal school hours; instead, the school will be open between 12.00pm and 7.00pm. Your child should attend their appointment with you and use the remainder of the day to complete pre-set activities at home. We ask that students attend their appointment in full school uniform.

In response to parental feedback, we operate two broad time slots and will endeavour to offer parents a degree of choice as to the session they would find most convenient to attend.    Appointments are available between 12.30pm – 3.15pm and 4.15pm – 7.00pm. Your child should make an appointment with their form tutor direct and should do this by using the appropriate appointment page in their student planner. Planners will be distributed to students on the first day of the academic year.
