Open Day Policy
Gateway Primary provides parents with an opportunity to discuss their children’s progress in specialist subjects on an annual basis and two open day sessions are scheduled per year for classroom teachers.

The school is also open for parents to make individual appointments or e-mail to discuss progress of a child anytime during the course of the year, apart from the formal open day appointment schedule. 

Formal open day appointments will be made available online.  Parents need to respect this process and make all effort to use the formal scheduler instead of jut arriving. Parents and teachers use the formal schedule to prepare for open day and prior arrangement makes this possible. 

In the failure to make a formal appointment the teacher has the right to inform the parent that they are not able to accommodate them for a time slot on the day of open day or other days unless the teacher stipulates any other arrangements.
Open Day Procedure
Gateway Primary uses an online appointment scheduler.  The open day links are found above. The scheduler provides the opportunity to make one appointment for one child at a time per teachers.  For multiple children or teachers parents have to select the link for the teacher and make a separate appointment and repeat this process for each teacher and additional child.
