Year 8 Key Stage 4 Options Evening is Wednesday 15th May 2019. 


Dear Parent/Carer

Key Stage 4 Options Process and Information Evening

Wednesday 15th May 2019 starting at 6.00pm

We hope that you are able to attend this very important evening in the life of your son/daughter. Nowadays, the number of options available to students is far greater than in the past. In order to personalise a student’s curriculum, it is crucial that we supply as much advice and guidance as possible. Your full understanding of the options process, and the changes to GCSE qualifications, will be an added necessity if you are to be able to support your son/daughter in their decision making.

The evening will begin with a short explanation of the options process and any additional information necessary. You will then be able to speak with staff from all subject areas and they will be able to offer help and advice as appropriate.

Once you and your son/daughter have talked with staff and had further discussions together, hopefully they will be in a position to make their choices. A careers interview can be arranged with Mrs Kay if you have any uncertainties or extra help and direction is needed.

The deadline for making option choices is Wednesday 22nd May and further details regarding the process will be provided on the evening, your son/daughter can make or amend their choices at any time up until this date.

All of the information that you and your son/daughter need has been sent with this letter, which includes the Options Booklet and information about how to complete the on-line option choice process.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the data team at datateam@passmoresacademy.com.

Yours faithfully

Natalie Christie
