In September, you will receive an invitation to a Parents’ Welcome Evening so that you can meet your son or daughter’s progress tutor and learn more about the courses they are studying.
Parents’ Evenings are held each year when parents and carers have the opportunity to meet with individual subject teachers. Please use the Parents’ Evening System to book your appointment.
Progress review reports and attendance reports are sent to parents and carers regularly throughout the year. Parents and carers are welcome to contact their daughter or son’s progress tutor. The progress tutor will also get in touch whenever necessary and particularly if there is a concern about a student’s work, well-being, attendance or punctuality.
Please note that St John Rigby College does not authorise students to take holidays in term-time. Please use the term date information provided to plan holidays.
For further information and guidance please access our Parents’ Guide.
