Parents' Evenings and Tutor Meetings
Parents’ Evenings for Years 10 to 13
For Years 10-13 Parents’ evenings, parents will have a five-minute meeting with each member of staff in Years 10 and 11 and a ten-minute meeting with each member of staff in Years 12 and 13.
You will find a link to the booking site under Quick Links above or by clicking here.
Tutor Evenings for Years 7 to 9
In Years 7-9 parents will have a twenty-minute meeting with their child’s form tutor who will collect information from your child’s subject teachers beforehand to inform the meeting. Students will also be asked to bring their exercise books to the meeting. Rather than have a specific day for the meeting we have identified a two-week window for these meetings to occur. This allows more flexibility for you to arrange a time which best suits your day. Your child’s tutor will contact you before the two-week window to arrange a time. The dates for the two-week windows are given overleaf. We hope that this will enable you to have a full and meaningful discussion about your child’s progress and to build up a relationship with your child’s tutor.
Remote Parents’ Evenings 2020-2021
Your child’s Parents’ Evening will take place remotely this year. We have bought into a package that is linked to School Comms and our present Parents’ Evening software. The package will allow you to make appointments with your child’s form tutor and will then set up the meeting for you online. You will be sent a letter a few weeks before each Parents’ Evening with a log in and specific details.
You will need to have a device with a microphone and speaker and a compatible web browser. We recommend:
- Using your smartphone for video appointments. If you don’t have a smartphone with a front facing camera, use a laptop or computer with a webcam.
- Using a headset (or earphones with a microphone) to reduce echo.
- Please use one of the following compatible web browsers:
Android: Chrome or Firefox
Windows: Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Edge
Mac: Safari, Chrome or Firefox
Linux: Chrome or Firefox
