Parent Information Evenings
"Parent Information Evenings" have replaced "Parent Forum" in 2017-18. This is in response to feedback from parents. Instead of the general open forum, which was available to any parents and any student at New Mills School, parents felt they wanted more information and discussion which was specific to their child's stage and year group. The "Parent Information Evenings" are our way of meeting that request.
Each Parent Information Evening (or PIE for short) is specific to a year group, and invitations are sent out a week in advance. Senior staff, the relevant Year Manager and Progress Leader all attend. Each PIE begins with a presentation on the key information for that particular year group, and then all parents are invited to discuss any particular matters with the staff available. They are not traditional parents evenings, these take place at different points in the school year. Parent Information Evenings are more general in tone.
The presentations from this year's PIE's can be found below:
