How Parents’ Evening Works

Each year group has an annual parents’ evening which provides an invaluable opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teachers and discuss their progress as well as any issues that concern you or your child.

Parents’ Evening will take place through an online provision due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. The online provision is called School Cloud.

You will be able to choose your own appointment times between 4.15 – 6.30 pm with available teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments.

You will have a three-minute time-slot with each subject teacher. You will need to login to your School Cloud account to make your video calls to each teacher you have an appointment with.
