Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
Dear Year 8 Parents/Carers
In order to further support your child to make the right choices during the Options process, I am delighted to introduce additions to our Year 8 Options Information website page.
Please find the following resources below:
- Mr Place’s ‘Welcome’ video message
- Mr Parry’s video presentation on ‘How to make your choices’ with the SIMS Parent App
- Individual video presentations, for every subject, with a wealth of information on what to expect at Key Stage 4. Simply click on the subject title to view the video
- The ‘Introduction to the Options process’ video presentation
- The Options Booklet which provides an overview of the process and detailed information on all Key Stage 4 courses
SIMS Parent App
As detailed in Mr Parry’s presentation and the Options Booklet, Option choices are made via the SIMS Parent App. Should you have any technical issues with this, please do contact Mrs Blake-Thomas at email@example.com who will be able to assist in resolving these.
The deadline for choices to be made is Friday 5 March.
Students invited to choose Separate Science will be contacted by Mr Doyle by Friday 12 February.
In addition to this information, the Heads of Department for those subjects which are not delivered at Key Stage 3, will be visiting each SAM, during SAM Time, from Monday 1 February. These sessions will begin at 8:30am and students should access their normal SAM, on Google Classroom, by using their usual link (also found on Satchel:One). This is an excellent opportunity for colleagues to share information on their courses and answer any questions students may have. The schedule for this is as below.
