Parents evening appointments are now available to book online with your child's class teacher.  The meetings are an opportunity for you to meet your child's new teacher, and to discuss ways in which we can work together to make the coming school year a happy and successful one.

If you would like to attend please complete the online form with your choice of day and time.  Please note that only available times will show on the form.  Your child's class teacher will confirm your appointment details with you closer to the date.

We anticipate that the middle slots will be less busy so please consider if you could attend at these times to help others who need to rely on early or late slots.

If you cannot attend on either night but would like an alternative appointment, please contact the school office on 0191 2006337 and we will try to arrange a mutually convenient time.

You will need to complete the form for each child separately selecting their class from the links below.
