Finding out about your child’s progress

Schools hold after-school parents’ meetings at least twice a year in primary schools and once a year or more in secondary schools.  At these evenings, parents can meet the teachers to talk about their child's progress.

You can find out about your child's progress at other times of the year. Schools also have information meetings at important times like moving from primary to secondary school or to give you information about how to help your child with reading or maths.

Primary schools often invite parents into the classroom for part of the day to see their child’s work. They often invite parents to assemblies, which are good opportunities to support your child and the school.
