Parents/Carers Matter

Parents/Carers Matter

At Beauchamp we understand the value of an equal partnership between teachers and parents/carers on the emotional and academic wellbeing of students.


We want our parents/carers to have a voice on the issues that matter. Our aim is to enable parents/carers to access additional information so that you can exercise effective choice in your child’s education.

This year we are continuing a programme of informal sessions for parents/carers at Beauchamp. There are two types of sessions available each week and you are welcome to choose the one that best suits you. There is absolutely no obligation to attend every session.


Parent/Carer Forums

Regularly on Tuesdays from 6:30pm in the Refectory there will be a parent forum where a member of the Beauchamp leadership team will lead a discussion on key topics that were suggested to us by parents/carers last term. These sessions will be informal and there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions. Tea and coffee will be provided.


TUESDAY 15th January – Comparative Judgements: A New Approach to Marking English Exams - 6.30pm 

This year for the first time we will be using an online system for levelling students’ work. This means that all exams will be scanned in and uploaded to a secure website. As teachers we will then mark these papers on the computer rather than by hand, mirroring the way that papers will be marked externally in the summer.

If you have any questions about this system or if you are interested in how the process works, we would like to invite you to a parent forum on Tuesday 15th January at 18:30. There will be an introduction to the system and an opportunity to sample this system for yourselves.

TUESDAY 12th FEBruary – GCSE PE: Practical assessment and exam preparation - 6.30pm 

This is a key time of year in the GCSE PE programme as shortly after this parent/carer forum the practical scores will be finalised and sent off to the examination board for accreditation, leaving the two exams in the summer before the course is then complete.

The forum aims to highlight key dates, direct parents to key resources and give advice on effective exam preparation techniques for the two GCSE PE theory papers.

Coffee Mornings

Every first Tuesday of each month (see below for details) from 9:15 – 10:15am in the Refectory there will be an opportunity to get together to meet new friends and find out more about what learning goes on at Beauchamp. We will have various sessions on literacy, numeracy, exam revision techniques, relaxation and well-being etc. There will also be an opportunity to develop adult learning and gain qualifications. Refreshments will be provided!

You do not need to book a place for these sessions and younger children are welcome.

This event is for both current and prospective parents/carers of students at Beauchamp College. It will not include a tour of the college.
