Virtual Parents & Carers Evenings
For the academic year 2021/2022, some of our parents'/carers' consultation evenings will held online via the SchoolCloud online platform. This will allow our staff to meet with Parents & Carers online whilst maintaining social distancing.
The event will operate as similarly to the face-to-face parent/carer consultation evenings as possible.
The event will commence at 16:00 and end at 18:30. The final appointment will take place at 17:50.
Appointment slots will last 5 minutes.
Please note that the software will end the virtual meeting after 5 minutes. Staff will be unable to extend appointment times.
Parents/Carers will be able to sign up to appointment slots via the SchoolCloud platform.
All subject teachers, form tutors, and Achievement Co-ordinators will be available to attend appointments.
There are two stages to attending a virtual parents'/carers' evening:
|1 - Booking appointments||2 - Attending appointments|
Should you have any additional queries, please e-mail the school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to make video calls you need to have as a minimum:
