Parents Evenings give you the opportunity to find out your child’s progress in all subject areas and for you to ask any questions you may have about your child’s learning at The Castle Rock School. It is useful for your child to attend these sessions with you as subject teachers will often set your child a target to work on in future lessons to help them achieve their full potential. Teachers will also advise you on how best to help your child with their learning.
Parents Evenings take place every term and we welcome all parents to attend.
Next Event – Year 10 Parents Evening on Thursday 11th March 2021, 4.00pm – 7.00pm
Parents can of course contact the school at any time if they have questions or concerns about their child’s education
Due to current restrictions our Parents Evenings have moved online.
Our new Virtual Parents Evenings are an opportunity to talk to your child’s teachers about progress this Academic year and an opportunity to ask any questions you or your child may have.
All appointments are 5 minutes long.
We are using a new system called School Cloud.
Please follow the guidance below to make your appointments
