10 key questions to ask at parents' evening
Is my child working at an appropriate level for her age?
While some teachers are direct, others might be a little vague in their desire to keep the meeting positive. A direct question like this helps to clarify if your child is doing fine, or if there are areas where she needs extra support.
While it's tempting to compare notes with other mums and dads at parents' evening, don't panic if your child doesn't seem to be flying as high as someone else's son or daughter. Some parents can be terribly competitive and boastful - but all that matters is your child's performance and experience of school.
