Booking the Appointments

You will need the information in the letter that you have received by email to begin the process of booking appointments.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic we are unable to host our parents evenings for each of our year groups in school. We are however able to allow parents of students the opportunity to speak to their child’s teachers remotely in a virtual parents evening.

You will receive information allowing you to make a booking with your child’s form tutor (and in some cases another member of staff). The email will have the name of your child in the title as shown in the image below (you may have to check your Spam / Junk mail folder on your email account).

If you are displayed with an option by your email provider to mark the email as not spam it is highly advised to do so in order to receive any future emails directly to your Inbox from the Parent Evening system. See below for an example.

 

Example of Parent invite email within a Gmail account presenting the option to mark this and all future email as not spam. 

Within the email is an attached letter containing a code which you need to access the system and book an appointment at a time convenient to you.

For further instructions on how to book and join an appointment that you have made please download the available quick start user guides:


The quick start user guides above are provided in PDF format and will open on most computers, tablets and smartphones without the need for additional software, but if you need to download a reader follow this link (computers only) or on tablets and smartphones use the Apple iTunes or Google Play stores.
