Pupil Progress Presentation Evening

Barry Comprehensive School’s Year 7 students worked extra hard preparing to welcome their parents/carers and families to the annual ‘Pupil Progress Presentation Evening’.

The boys made individual presentations about their learning to demonstrate the progress that they have made since joining the school in September. The students focussed on English and Maths, plus a subject of their choice.

Parental involvement in learning is vital in ensuring students achieve at their highest level. As part of the school/home partnership, parents were asked to note targets for improvement and encouraged to make use of the support materials that were available to help the whole family join in.

As part of the school’s on-going drive to raise standards, the evening was evaluated with a parent questionnaire with the feedback being extremely positive about the learning achieved already this term.  Parents also commented on the helpful advice and booklets that were given on the night so parents themselves could help with their son's literacy and numeracy at home.
