WORKING WITH YOU DURING THEIR TIME AS A STUDENT
Through close collaboration, we can support our learners to ensure they achieve their full potential and are successful, both in their studies with us and beyond. We encourage all parents and carers to join with us to support our learners and recognise the assistance they provide is essential to their progress. Therefore, we will contact parents and carers if there are any concerns about attendance, punctuality, effort or behaviour. Alongside this, we will take every opportunity to celebrate your young person’s successes.
Throughout a learner’s time at Weston College, parents and carers are kept informed and involved through several activities including:
- A start of year welcome and meet the tutor evening.
- Reports outlining the progress learners are making and communication if their attendance or performance on their programme is below the expectation set by the College.
- Parent/Carer Evenings giving you the chance to meet tutors and discuss your young person’s progress.
- Regular communications such as newsletters, plus much more...
