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 and carers will be sent an email which will explain the details of how to access the parent portal.

Progress Review 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. 

The 2023/2024 Progress Review Evenings are planned for the following dates and you will receive an invite two weeks prior to the event: 

  • Thursday 14th December 2023 (Y13 and one year courses)
  • Tuesday 19th December 2023 (Y13 and one year courses)
  • Thursday 8th February 2024 (Y12)
  • Tuesday 13th February 2024 (Y12)

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.
