Parents' Evenings

Parents’ Evenings – Week beginning 19th October 2020

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our usual Parents’ Evenings are having to be held remotely this year.  However, we are very keen for you to have an opportunity to meet the teacher (by video) and to be able to ask questions about how your child is doing and how they are catching up after the interrupted schooling.

As you will know, we used Google Meet successfully during lockdown for direct teaching, so now we would like to connect with the parents and carers virtually too. If we ever have to close bubbles in the future this will be how we will teach remotely, so it is important for all parents to get to grips with using this platform. Your child’s Class Teacher or our ICT technician will support any parents to access the technology.

These evenings will run using Google Meet, using your child’s login to access the meeting. The login details will be communicated to you separately by your child’s Class Teacher. Please note that the teachers may not necessarily be presenting from their Classrooms, some may choose to do it from home. Please see the instructions below, detailing how to access the meet if you are not familiar with this system. In order for these evenings to run as smoothly as possible, please could we ask everyone to be available at their allocated time.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to these evenings and the timings and meeting codes will be sent out by the class teacher on Class Dojo.
