Y7 Parent/Carer ‘Meet the Tutor’ Event

Firstly, I would like to thank you for choosing Wingfield Academy as your preferred secondary school. Your children have settled in well and it has been an absolute delight to see them learn and make the steady transition from primary to secondary over this half term

Secondly, I have pleasure in inviting you to the ‘Meet the Tutor’ event which will be held on Monday 19th November 2018 and Monday 26th November 2018 from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm. A member of Academy staff will contact you in order for you to make an appointment for the date and time most suitable for you.

Form Tutors are your child’s first point of contact and this meeting will provide an opportunity for you to speak with your son or daughter’s Form Tutor to discuss how your child has settled into secondary school life and to address any pastoral issues or concerns.

Academic progress will not be discussed at this meeting but you will be able to discuss this aspect at the formal Year 7 Parent/Teacher Consultation Evening which will be held later in the school year on Thursday 21 st March 2019.

Finally, Year 7 have enjoyed an early lunch this half term in order to help them settle in and make new friends and this has been successful. With effect from next term which commences on the 5th November, all Year 7 students will follow normal Academy lunch practice. Any student with a packed lunch will have access from 12.05 pm to the main assembly hall, and those students requiring an Academy lunch will have access to the Griffin from 12.15 pm.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Academy if you have any queries.

Yours faithfully
