RL Parents’ Evening Tuesday 3rd May and Thursday 5th May 2022

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your patience in waiting for the booking system for Parents’ Evening to go live.  We have had a new information management system installed in Stanley over Easter and it has taken some time to update systems such as School Cloud.

Ms Latham is available for virtual appointments on Tuesday 3rd May and Face-to-face appointments on Thursday 5th May. As we are offering the option of face-to-face or virtual meeting, bookings will be on a first come, first-served basis.

The system should allow you to book either a face-to-face parents’ evening appointment which will take place in school or a virtual appointment which you can join remotely (in the same way you joined virtual parents’ evenings previously). The format of the meeting whether you have a face-to-face meeting or a virtual meeting will be exactly the same and with the same timings.

Virtual appointments

You will receive a booking confirmation once you have made your booking with a link to join the meeting at the allocated time.  It is extremely important that you are on the link just prior to the meeting so you can join when your time starts.  Many parents preferred the virtual Parents’ Evening option as it gives you the flexibility to join the meeting without having to arrange to come to school and can be taken from anywhere using your SMART phone or other digital device.  Failure to arrive on time will result in a missed appointment.

Face-to-face appointments

Please come to the school office at just prior to your allocated time.

You will notice that the appointment times are not in the usual format of five-minute intervals and it may seem strange that the system has booked your appointment at e.g. 15.36 or 15.42, this is because it allows time for teachers and parents to move between appointments whether virtual or face-to face.  It is very important that appointment times are adhered to so that all parents and teachers receive their time to have their discussion.

*Please note if you have a child/children in Stanley in another year group you will need to book their appointments on the Whole School Parents’ Evening option (this is unique for RL due to the fact that Ms. Latham’s Tuesday evening is virtual).  Please give us a telephone call if you are struggling.

Thank you and we look forward to you attending either virtually or face-to-face.

Kind regards,

Mr C N England
