Original letter:

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to inform you that we will be running a Parents’ Information Evening on 6 November 2013 to present our new target setting and progress reporting process. We feel it is important for you to understand both the rationale for the changes and how this will help you to track your child’s progress more effectively. This presentation will take place at 5.30 pm in the main hall and I would be grateful if you could complete and return the reply slip below to let us know if you will be attending. To help us with seating arrangements for the evening, could I ask you please to return the slip even if you are unable to attend.

For those parents/carers who are unable to attend the evening, the slides from the presentation will be made available on the website.
