Parent Teacher Evening It was great to see so many parents in attendance at our first Parents Evening this academic year. Your attendance at these events are important as it provides time to speak with your child’s teachers and find out how they are getting on at school. It is an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have and also for the teachers to explain how you can support your child. Hopefully leaving you confident that we at BPS are working hard to develop your child’s learning. At the meeting you should have received a copy of your child’s unique, self created student goals. These are completely independent and unedited, providing an insight into what your child perceives as areas to develop in their own learning and compliments the teachers perspective. This year you will have also noticed several staff around the school with Ipads. We took this opportunity to take feedback on the evening with a few questions to better inform what we do at BPS - thank you to those who took part in the questionnaire. If you were unable to attend and would still like to meet with your teacher then please do contact them directly to make an appointment. Likewise, if you have any
