2016.04.22: Letter from the Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have engaged a highly productive week of learning at GVC and all year groups have been making good progress in their studies.
Bring Your Books Home Weekend
The feedback from this event has been extremely positive and a huge thank you to parents for taking the time to read your child’s work and add comments. Thank you also for ensuring that all work was returned to school on Monday in time for lessons!
Much of the process has celebrated the high standards of work and there have also been comments on targeted improvements and what parents will do at home to help their child improve further. It is exactly this kind of collaborative approach which can be so powerful in enhancing learning and motivation. I have also encouraged teachers to answer any questions or confirm any requests for help which may have appeared in the comments section. This will also prove extremely useful in ensuring an effective dialogue between teachers and parents. In summary Bring Your Books Home Weekend has been a great success. I am planning to run this scheme as a calendared termly event and thank you to the parents forum for the idea!
