PTCE & School Report Dates

Parent Teacher Consultation Evenings (PTCEs) occur once a year and appointments can be made following a tracking round to speak to any of your child’s teachers.

Please do not feel the need to wait until these calendared events to contact the school about your child’s education.  Telephone conversations and appointments with individual teachers, Directors of Learning or Heads of Faculty can all be arranged by contacting the school office by phone, email or in writing.  Similarly, the staff will do their best to keep you fully informed about your child’s progress at Larkmead School.

Our PTCE bookings are managed via an online booking system.  Please click here for full instructions on how to book appointments.

Target Setting Days are organised for Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 for students and parents to meet with the form tutor to discuss targets for the year ahead.  Year 7 parents have a similar opportunity to meet the tutors on the ‘Year 7 Meet the Tutor Day’.

Tracking data is sent home either two or three times a year with information about how your child is doing in each of the subjects they are taught.  This will usually include:

  • Attendance
  • Target Grades
  • Predicted Grades
  • Attitude to Learning scores “in the classroom”
  • Attitude to Learning Scores “beyond the classroom” (e.g. homework)
