Year 11 Parents Evening

Jan 26, 2021

Please see below for a letter from Mrs McCourt about the forthcoming Year 11 Parents Evening:

Dear Parent/Carer, 

Re: Year 11 Parents’ Evening – video call consultation booking system  

I am writing to inform you about the plans for Year 11 Parents’ Evening due to take place on Thursday 11 February. We will replace the face-to-face meetings with a video call or telephone consultation booking system. Further information will be sent out next week on how to access this facility and make appointments with your daughter’s subject teacher and/or pastoral team.  

Video consultations will take place on Thursday 11 February and appointments can be made via GroupCall from 9am to 6pm. Each consultation will last for five minutes. You will have the opportunity to talk to staff about your daughter’s current academic progress, effort and engagement in the remote learning programme.  

Your daughter received her termly academic report in December 2020. This termly report provided key pieces of information relating to her current academic progress, achievements, behaviour and attendance.  

Over 900 video calls took place during the Year 7 Parents’ Evening and we received positive feedback regarding the appointment system. We did experience some technical issues therefore please note the following requirements: 

  • Open the link to the video call at least 2 minutes before the scheduled appointment  
  • Ensure you have good internet connection to avoid any technical issues with sound

Please note that we will be unable to discuss summer assessments or grading procedures, pending the outcome of the national consultation led by Ofqual and the Department for Education. As soon as we receive the recommendations from this report, we will outline how your daughter will be assessed in the summer in preparation for awarding her GCSE grades.  

Please do not hesitate to contact school if you require any further information. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support. 

Yours faithfully, 

 

Mrs K McCourt
Deputy Headteacher
