Teachers in Rockbrook take seriously their responsibility for the all-round education of the students in their care. While the primary relationship is around teaching and learning, teachers in Rockbrook get to know all aspects of their students’ lives really well and act as supportive role models for them.
The primary interaction between teacher and parent takes place in the Student’s Journal where standards of work and behaviour are noted. Teachers also provide assessment and/or examination feedback by way of written report on three occasions each year. They also are available on two occasions each year to the parents of each class group for the standard parent-teacher meetings.
Teachers who double up as mentors are available to meet for an individual conversation with parents of the boys they are mentoring on two or three occasions each year.
Year-heads may contact parents from time to time to discuss disciplinary matters, but always with a view to resolving issues. It would not be unusual for a subject teacher to ring a parent should that teacher have concerns about a student, although that communication might also be through notes written in the Student Journal.
