Dear Parents/Carers

Year 10 Parents’ Evening Wednesday 7 July 4:00pm – 7:00pm.

You are invited to attend the Year 10 Parents’ Evening to be held on Wednesday 7 July 2021 between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. In order for the evening to run smoothly and remain in line with COVID-19 restrictions, we are limiting places to one parent/carer and one Year 10 pupil only. It is essential that your Year 10 child attends with the parent/carer. Parents and pupils should wear facemasks when moving around the school site (unless exempt), and should remain 2 metres socially distanced from other people. Appointments will be taking place in individual
classrooms, where there will be more than 2 metres between the household and the teacher. Parents should wait outside the classroom until the previous appointment is finished. These safety measures may be revised depending on government guidance.

We operate an appointments system but parents need to be aware that these may be spread over the whole evening so that as many staff as possible can be seen. Your son/daughter should complete the form provided with the names of teachers. He/she should then ask each teacher to fill in the time of appointment and give the form to you before the Parents’ Evening – please ensure that you have the list of appointments before coming to the evening.

All parents and pupils should sign in on arrival at the Drama Hall foyer, and again sign out before leaving at the end. Since several members of staff teach two or more groups of pupils they will have to limit appointments to three minutes. It is very important that everyone keeps to the times stated. If parents require longer, a subsequent appointment should be made with the individual member of staff for another time. Following the evening, if you wish to contact our SENCO, Mrs Rosling, then please email arosling@stmaryschesterfield.org.uk or ring into school for an appointment with her.

Due to limited parking facilities parents are requested not to use the lower staff car park – the bus turning circle may be used. Please park diagonally on the bus bay as instructed by the site manager. There is further space available in two other car parks which are situated at the top end of the school. From Newbold, please drive past the school buildings and take the first left. Please be considerate of our neighbours who live near to school by not blocking their access and please avoid parking in any of the roads immediately next to our school site. We anticipate that each child will be represented at Parents’ Evening. If no one can attend for your child, please email Mrs Gilding, our Headteacher’s PA, rgilding@stmaryschesterfield.org.uk.
Yours faithfully

Mr A Breedon
Assistant Headteacher
