Dear Parent/Carer


We are writing to invite you to the Year 7 ‘Settling In’ Evening which will be taking place on Thursday 26th September between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. The evening is an opportunity for you to discuss how your child has settled into life at Netherwood and to discuss any concerns or worries you may have. As this is a big and exciting transition for students, we are keen to ensure that they are happy and content at school and that you, as a parent, understand how to make contact with various members of staff should you need to. On the evening, we will be requesting feedback on your opinion on how successful a transition your child has had into Netherwood. We would like to know if there is anything that we could have done to make the transition process more effective.

The school operates an easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with form tutors and receive an email confirming your appointments. Appointments can be made from 12.00noon Monday 16th September 2019 and will close at midday on Wednesday 25th September. Should you wish to make any changes after this date please contact the school office.

Please visit https://netherwood.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your appointments. (A short guide on how to add appointments is enclosed with this letter.) If you do not have access to the internet, please contact the school office who will be happy to assist you. On the evening please enter the school by the main entrance only.

Please note that this evening is a settling in evening where you have the opportunity to discuss any issues with your child’s form tutor. A full parents evening will take place on Thursday 2nd July 2020.

If you require any further clarification about the Year 7 ‘Settling In’ Evening please do not hesitate to contact me on 01226 272000, email twood2@astreanetherwood.org or Mr J Batchelor, Y7 Student Manager jbatchelor@astreanetherwood.org
