This is to inform you that the forthcoming VIRTUAL YEAR 9 PROGRESS – PARENTS’ EVENING, will take place online on Thursday March 4th 2021, between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. Due to Covid restrictions we will run this Year 9 Progress Parents’ Evening via a Video appointment system.

These appointments can be done over any phone, tablet, laptop etc and you won’t need to download any app or software. (We have been informed that those with iPhone/iPad running iOS 14.2 may experience some ‘audio ‘stutter/blips’ so Apple advise upgrading your iOS to 14.3 to avoid this.)
This evening will allow you the opportunity to discuss with your son/daughter’s subject teachers any queries you may have about progress and possible Year 10 options. You can still view the options evening presentation by clicking HERE and the options booklet can be found HERE Please note that the deadline for options choices is Monday 8th March 2021.

HOW TO MAKE /CHECK APPOINTMENTS
The booking system will open at 9.am on Feb 23rd 2021. To make appointments or to check appointments you need to use the link at the bottom of this page.
You will be asked for some basic details in order to access the appointment page. Please note that you must use your child’s legal name (this would be the name you gave us when they started- rather than any preferred name they use now) when signing up for appointments. The email address can be any email address that you can access. Your schedule of appointments will be sent to that email address.
Appointments must be booked by 3.00pm on Thursday 4th March.
HOW TO START THE APPOINTMENTS ON THURSDAY 4TH
On Thursday evening you just need to sign back in using the same link at the bottom of the page and enter the same details that you used to make your appointments. We would advise you to sign in in advance of your first appointment so that you can test the sound etc on your device.
As you can appreciate where some teachers teach more than one year 9 class, there might be limited free appointment slots available for those teachers as they get booked up by parents/carers. If you find that there are no appointment slots left and you still want to speak to that member of staff please contact the school and the subject teacher will make an alternative time to speak with you.
Each appointment is limited to 5 minutes and there will be a visible ‘countdown’ on the screen towards the end of the 5 minutes. Be aware that the appointment will end exactly at 5 minutes so it may seem abrupt.
We look forward to you joining us on Thursday 4th March 2021
