We are constantly looking to review and improve our parent-teacher communication and collaboration at the Martin High School.
We truly believe that we can make the difference to your child’s progress by working closely together with you as a parent or carer.
Please see the schedule below for all APE events

|APE||Year 7||Year 8||Year 9||Year 10||Year 11|

Firstly, there will now be two of these evenings over the course of the year, rather than the traditional once-a-year “Parents’ Evening”. We have listened to your previous feedback and agree that two evenings to discuss your child’s progress is more helpful than one plus a standard report.
We want to give you more opportunity to discuss your child’s learning in all subject areas and therefore to allow you to better understand and track their progress at the Martin High School. As such, we do ask that you bring your child with you to these events, so that we can effectively discuss and improve your child’s outcomes at the school.
Your child’s teachers will discuss the following areas during the APE, which we believe are the five fundamental areas of their learning and progress at our school:
Please note, we are moving away from a system of discussing ‘levels’ or ‘grades’ with pupils and parents at KS3, as we want to ensure that we truly focus on pupil progress (success and next steps), rather than simply their attainment. We will discuss levels at KS4, as pupils build towards their GCSE exams.
We hope that in making these changes, we will be providing you with clearer, more effective and more pertinent feedback regarding your child’s progress at the Martin High School.
We very much look forward to seeing you on the evening.
