What questions do you ask at parents evenings?

Nowadays I mostly ask what the different numbers on the report mean in each subject, and how it is assessed, as KS3 reporting is a free for all. Otherwise I just see what is said and respond or ask for clarification as necessary. I am a teacher, which might make it easier maybe?

We pick at most 3 from stuff like this:

Questions
How is she getting on?
What is the next step to improving?
She's thinking about this for GCSE, is that sensible?
How can we help at home?
Can you recommend a revision/text book?
How can she improve <weakness>

Comments
I'm really pleased with her progress
She says she has difficulty in your class because <reason>
I think she is better being high in a low set than low in a higher one
She is enjoying subject a lot this year

Ooh useful... thank you. I’d only got as far as getting my head around DS being in charge of booking appointments, not what actually to ask!

I also go through each subject with DD before the parents evening, asking her how she feels and are there an issues in the lessons. So I can advocate 'DD says sometimes you go a bit fast for taking notes' or 'DD says sometimes the boys are a bit disruptive' and/or 'DD is really enjoying the lessons' or whatever.

depends on the kid...

Next week, it will simply to get DS to hear some teachers say positive things about him, and establish that the bunch of us are a team trying to support DS to do his best. That can mean finding ways to make English & ICT more enjoyable.

I tend to ask questions based on performance and levels rather than just a C grade or level 4+ these days.

Progress to me is more important
