Dear Parent and Carers,
I am writing to thank you for your support during this important time in your child’s education.
On Thursday 29th April 2021 the year 8 progress evening will take place, which will take place under the current restrictions online with your tutor. We will be using our existing class structures on Microsoft Teams to organise meetings.
The purpose of the meeting is to give you up to date feedback on your child’s progress. We trust these meetings will be productive in supporting your child. Please note that appointments are arranged at 5-minute intervals to enable all parents to meet with their child’s tutor. It is important that your child attends the meeting with you.
Tutors will have arranged/be arranging the times for the appointments during their tutor time. Appointments will be available between 3.30pm to 6pm. Students have been asked to keep a record of their appointment. Please ensure that your child is clear about your availability for the afternoon.
How the meeting will work
The virtual meetings will take place on Microsoft Teams using the class structures already created for students. Tutors will have already booked a whole class meeting that covers the whole evening. Each class meeting will have a virtual lobby that parents can access and wait in before the meeting begins. Staff will invite parents individually from the lobby for their meeting.
Your continued support in your child’s education is most important. Together, we can work to help your child achieve the highest possible success; therefore, I ask you to make every effort to support them and make an appointment and be available for conversations with their tutor.
