Working together with parents is integral to our ethos at LAMP.
What do we do?
Progress reviews take place every 6 weeks allowing parents and students to discuss their progress and any issues. These reviews provide a fantastic opportunity to meet with parents and students together on a regular basis, creating strong lines of communication between you, as parents and guardians, and us. It offers a chance to review the student’s learning package to ensure it is still appropriate to their needs.
Subject reports are produced termly. These provide students and parents with up to date information on students' progression and any areas of development
We’re in the process of setting up a LAMP PTA. If you are interested in helping with this please email;
Showcasing students' work
We love sharing the work of our students. At the end of every term there is a concert for our Level 2 and 3 Music students to showcase their work. This is usually a mix of solo performances as well as groups. Music ranges from pop to rock and also experimental music. Some of these concerts are at LAMP and we also use other venues around town. Some of these performances are assessed as part of the courses.
At the end of year show we also have exhibitions of Art, Photography, Computer Games and Japanese. Parents and friends are welcome at all of our concerts and shows!
