  9. 9. Parental contact <ul><li>All staff: </li></ul><ul><li>The student diary is the primary medium for contact between teachers and parents. All teachers may write comments, which will be read by tutors and parents on a weekly basis and should be followed up as necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>Contact home is usually made through the relevant tutor or co-ordinator. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers do not contact parents by telephone . </li></ul><ul><li>Subject teachers may decide to contact parents over subject specific issues causing particular concern.

  10. 10. <ul><li>Regarding students not making adequate progress or failing subjects: </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers identify students after each assessment window (mid and end of term) and subsequently organise parental interviews, highlighting areas for improvement. This information must be co-ordinated with the relevant tutor , who may hold the parental interview. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Details of any discussions should be recorded on the ‘Parent Meeting Report ’ form and copied to the tutor (for the file) and the academic secretary (Rosa) – the details of the appointment remain on the website until the report has been received by Rosa. </li></ul><ul><li>Tutors should use the ‘information request’ form and distribute this to teachers when gathering information about a student – a 3 day turn around is the norm for such requests. </li></ul>

Punishments <ul><li>Pastoral coordinators may decide that the detention should take place after school – written permission from parent/guardian is always required for this. </li></ul><ul><li>Pointless exercises related to copying or writing lines are often counterproductive.

Trips <ul><li>All letters/information for parents are distributed from the school office and are signed by the teacher responsible for the trip. </li></ul><ul><li>The permission slips are collected in by the teacher in charge of the trip (support from tutors and Myriam may be requested, especially when large numbers of students are involved). </li></ul><ul><li>No student is allowed to participate in a trip without the relevant signed permission from his or her parent/guardian. </li></ul>

Teachers responsible for a trip collect smaller sums in an envelope (with class list attached to keep record), which must be handed in to Admin on the morning of collection. </li></ul><ul><li>The chasing up of payments by teachers should be carried out sensitively and support from Myriam (contacting parents) is available if necessary. </li></ul>
