This week we have been having Pupil Led Parents Evening . In Pupil Led Parents evenings children take responsibility and meet with their parents to discuss their learning and progress from over the year.
At Bankside we believe this helps
Pupils to be empowered through recognition of their learning and their next steps
Pupils to be develop clearer understanding of the assessment process
Pupils to have individual ( and quality) time with their parents
Benefits for parents:
To see their child as the owner of their learning
Parents to be clearer on what is going well and the child’s next step therefore how they can support their child’s learning
Parents to have clarity in what their child knows
Clearer understanding of the strategies that pupils .

As you know at Bankside we value your opinions and feedback. To inform ourselves and OFSTED we will be using an online questionnaire called Parent View. Parent View gives you the chance to tell OFSTED what you think of our school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your childs school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The information you provide will be shared with OFSTED and will be used when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
Therefore we would like to invite you in to complete the online questionnaire . If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Ms Jan.
