Keeping in Touch

Good Communication Provides Better Support

Boston College believes that good communication provides better support for learners, and therefore always encourage you to get in touch should you have any questions or concerns.

There are several opportunities throughout the year for you to give or receive feedback on your son/daughter/ward’s progress.


Parents Discussion Evenings

You will be invited to parent discussion events in October and March.

Information collated from the learner's individual learning journey will be available to give you a full overview of attendance, commitment, progress and achievement.

You will receive reports regarding your son/daughter/ward's progress in October and January each year, in readiness for parent discussion evenings. A final report will be sent in May, which will also show progression.

Parent surveys are issued twice a year, normally in November and April. Boston College values your comments and feedback, and are committed to further improving the service provided.

Boston College hold award evenings in the summer term, and you along with family members are invited to attend. It is a chance for learners to showcase their skills and for those who have made outstanding progress to be acknowledged with the presentation of programme area awards.

Boston College uses the learner tracking system, VITAL. You can ask your son/daughter/ward to log in to their account, and this will allow you to review their attendance, progress and achievement throughout the year.
