A productive partnership between parents and the school is essential if children are to develop to their full potential.
The school communicates via
- parents' evenings
- other communication posted on the school website and/or social media channels
- by writing individually to parents or asking them to come to the school
However, Chepstow School wants the relationship between school and home to be interactive. You are, therefore, very welcome to contact the school, preferably by email, if you have any queries or concerns about your child's progress.
Every pupil receives an annual report which also contains a section where both pupils and parents can respond to the report. Reports generally vary a little for different year groups. Year 9 reports, for example, contain details of National Curriculum levels.
These generally occur in the Autumn or Spring Term and allow you to consult teachers on their child's progress. We try to keep waiting to a minimum on these occasions but there is some unavoidable queuing. We can only ask you to exercise the usual stoical patience that only parents possess!
The school usually holds an Information Evening once a year when parents can learn about the school's examination performance, developments in the school and a variety of other issues. This is usually held in the Autumn term.
