Making the Most of Parents’ Evenings

Make the most of Parents’ Evening with these useful tips from your PSA!

Here are some useful tips to make your meeting a good one:

  • Spend some time with your child before the parents’ evening talking about their work, homework, things they think they are good at and things they might be struggling with.
  • Ask your child about their behaviour in school. How could your child keep up the good standard, or improve it if necessary?
  • Make a note of any questions you want to ask the teachers.
  • If you feel there you didn’t have enough time to discuss everything you can always arrange to talk to the teacher again. Or chat to me, your Parent Support Advisor!
  • Ask questions if you don’t agree with something or are unsure what the teacher means.
  • If you think a meeting might be difficult, take another adult, such as a family member to give you support and maybe bring a different perspective to the situation.
  • Make a few notes from the meeting if it will help you remember what was said.
  • Try to come away from the parents’ evening with positive thoughts and strategies that will help your child succeed.
  • If you are unhappy about any element of the parents’ evening tell us!

After a Parents’ Evening it is important to share information with your child.

  • Talk to your child about what was discussed and agreed with teachers. Give as much praise as you can, but also discuss any issues.
  • Go through any targets and actions that were agreed.
  • Perhaps write them down and pin them somewhere you can both see them.
