At Belvidere we pride ourselves on keeping our parents and carers regularly informed about their son/daughter’s progress, as parents/carers you are actively encouraged to contact the school should you ever have any concerns. Through this fostering of open and honest school-home relationships, students are more likely to reach their potential and have the necessary support identified and in place to thrive and succeed.
In addition to this we do have one ‘formal’ feedback evening a year for each year group, where you will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s subject teachers to discuss their progress.
Parents/Carers evenings take place from 4.30pm - 7.30pm in the Hall and the Dining Hall, working on a simple appointment system. An email will be sent home about the forthcoming event. Students should then see their subject teachers to make the 5 minute appointment for each subject, recording the time in their homework diary for parents/carers to see. These are subject to availability on the evening. If required, a discussion at a later date can also be arranged with members of staff.
At the end of the evening we ask for your valuable feedback through the completion of a short questionnaire about your experiences at Belvidere, and to provide you with an opportunity to ask us any questions you may have or highlight any concerns.
We encourage students to accompany their parents/carers to this evening, as this gives the opportunity for everyone to discuss progress and celebrate success. However, often parents/carers welcome the opportunity to talk to teachers unaccompanied then feedback to their child - we leave it up to you to decide!
