RE: Parents’ Consultation Meetings
Thursday 1st October (3.30pm-8pm)
Friday 2nd October (9am-1pm)
Unfortunately, we are unable to organise the above meetings in the same way as normal. However, we still wish to provide all parents with the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress and how they are settling in with their class teacher. Therefore, we have organised the following:
There will be an opportunity for you to attend a meeting with your child’s class teacher via ‘Zoom’. Alternatively, if you prefer, this can be a telephone call.
These meetings will be held on Thursday 1st October 3.30pm-8pm and Friday 2nd October 9am-1pm.
You will be able to sign up for a 10 minute time slot.
You can book an appointment slot via the ARBOR app. Guidance on how to do this can be found here: https://support.arbor-education.com/hc/en-us/articles/203792102-Booking-Guardian-Consultations-Parent-s-Evenings-on-the-Parent-Portal
Please note that 3CM’s meeting will be an opportunity to meet Mr Perkins.
This is the first time that we have attempted parent meetings in this way yet we feel that it is essential you get the opportunity to talk with your child’s class teacher early in the school year. Please be patient with us as we become familiar with a new way of working.
Importantly, we are only able to offer one appointment per child - we are happy for more than one parent to join the meeting. However, if this would not be appropriate for you, please feel free to contact the school office.
You will be sent a zoom invite just before the meeting. Please make sure you are prepared and have tested that you can access zoom from whichever device you are using. Basic Zoom accounts (which is all you need) are free. Zoom can be accessed from smart phones, tablets and laptops or desktop PCs where a webcam and mic are installed. https://zoom.us/signup
If you do not join the meeting on zoom promptly, the teacher will call you instead. Please note that due to the tight timescales of appointments it is not possible to delay start times due to technical issues. If you prefer to speak over the phone rather than zoom you can add a note to the appointment to this effect.
