***Year 11 Parent's Evening***

12 November 2020

Dear Parent/Carer


As you will be aware, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions and a second national lockdown, we are unable to host the Year 11 Parents’ Evening at the current time.

We know how important it is for you to have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their teachers and with this in mind, we have asked the staff at The Gateway Academy to telephone all parents and carers of our Year 11 students over the next month.  The telephone calls will be to discuss feedback, following your child’s recent mock examinations, how your child is doing and what they need to do to ensure that they maximise their potential, in what has been and continues to be, difficult times for us all.

We felt it was important to inform you of this, as there will be an increase in telephone calls and possibly messages and we did not want you to be concerned.  These calls will last approximately 5 minutes and will focus on the specific subject which the teacher delivers to your child.  All calls regarding the feedback from the mock exams will occur between Monday 16 November and Friday 11 December 2020.

Should you have any general concerns regarding your son/daughter, please could I ask that you contact the Academy in the normal way directing your call to the Year 11 Progress Lead (Mr Concannon) or Year 11 Coach (Mrs Bettle).  Should you wish to email either of them, they can be contacted at or

We appreciate your continued support and understanding in this matter.

Kind regards,

Yours sincerely


Mr R Heighway
