Can't make the two parents' evenings. Could I just pop in...

    I always say to parents that I can't possibly see them after school, as I have meetings etc to attend. I then offer to see them in the morning before school, at 8am. Nobody has taken me up on this offer- yet.
  2. My children's school often seems to have parents evenings the same week that we do, which means it's impossible for me to attend. Luckily they are flexible and happy to see me at another time.
    What annoys me are the parents who just don't want to come to parents evenings at all.

    I feel sorry for their kids. We spend time tidying and sorting their trays and they write letters to share what they want their parents to look at and things they are proud of.....then noone comes to see their work. No apology.
