Year 7 Information Evening – Wednesday 18th October

The purpose of this Information Evening was to introduce you to some key members of staff who will work with Year 7 throughout their time with us as Helsby High School Students. There was time for Year 7 students and their families to meet members of the Senior Leadership Team, Pastoral Team and SENDCO, to introduce yourself, and discuss any queries you may have had.

The evening was split into two sessions, the first being Quality of Education, where the Year 7 curriculum, the importance of reading, target setting, and assessment and reporting was discussed, and parents/carers were guided through a typical lesson structure, and the process by which students receive feedback. The other session covered key information about Wider Personal Development and Support. This session covered the role of a Form Tutor, Pastoral care and support for students, supporting positive student behaviour, current reward and sanction schemes, and extracurricular and enrichment opportunities.

We feel it is crucial that we work collaboratively with our students and their families to ensure students are receiving consistency both inside and outside of school. This will help our students to reach their full potential during their time with us. We hope our Year 7 Information Evening proved useful.
