How does a parents' evening run at Woodhey?
A parents' evening at Woodhey runs for 3 hours between 4 pm and 7 pm. Each teacher must be at the parents' evening for at least 2 of the hours (4 - 6pm, 4.30 to 6.30 pm or 5 to 7 pm), although many will stay for longer.
Each pupil will have an appointment sheet stuck into the front of their homework planner. This shows 3 minute appointments ranging from 4 pm to 7 pm. As your child goes from lesson to lesson in the week before the parents' evening, they can make appointments with their teachers.
We encourage pupils to make appointments 6 minutes apart (e.g. if one appointment is at 4.00 pm, the next would be at 4.06 pm) to allow their parent time to move between appointments.
Please tell your child what time you would like to attend the parents' evening and also which subject teachers you would most like to see.
On the evening itself, all teachers are in the Frank Bennett Hall. They are grouped in subjects. The subjects are labelled on the walls. If you are not sure how to find a particular teacher, please ask one of our staff or pupils.
The appointments that your child has made are only a rough guide. They are designed to help you to know which teachers to see and roughly at what time. The appointments also tell the teachers which parents to expect and roughly what time.
It is not necessary to see teachers in the order they are shown on your appointment sheet. If a teacher is available, please feel free to see them immediately - even if it is ahead of your appointment time.
