As we draw to the close of the autumn term, now is the time when parents are keen to know how their child has settled at college this year, and what initial progress they have made, and of course, what they can do as parents to support their child during this key time. As such, Regent held its first parents’ evening of the academic year. Parents and students were invited to the College on the 8th and 10th December, depending on their year group, to meet with their subject teachers.
Teaching staff gave parents an update on the progress of their child and advised on areas of weakness and those topics where the students should focus their efforts during the course of the holidays, though they also took the opportunity to highlight areas where students were performing well, or making clear efforts to achieve. Parents posed questions on the most recent progress report, and together with their son/daughter and the teacher drew up a plan of action to ensure the best outcomes.
The event was very popular with parents; they enjoyed meeting our team and getting to know the staff who play such a significant part in their child’s life. They finished the evening by enjoying a marvellous spread of cheese, samosas and fudge cake to name but a few.
