Year 11 Parent Evening

Dear Parents and Carers,

This is a polite reminder that the Year 11 Progress Evening will be taking place on Tuesday 16th January  from 16.00 pm until 19.15 pm. Parents and Carers should book appointments on the School Cloud platform; however the evening will be held in person on the school site. We think that these face to face meetings are really important given the fact that our Year 11 students are preparing for their GCSES. At the moment, 65% of our students have appointments, we would hope that this would be closer to 75% given the importance of the year.

The arrangements are detailed below and Parents and Carers should take special note of the timed appointments on the evening; this will be different from historic parents evenings you may have attended in the past; however, it worked very efficiently at the Year 12 and 13 Progress Evening.

Teachers will be split over three sites: dining room, drama hall and the library which is on the first floor and therefore if access arrangements are required, please email

Extract from original letter…

We are using a piece of software provided through School Cloud and you can access the booking system through the following link:

Before you attend the event, please make sure you have a copy of the times of your appointments. On arrival at All Saints’, please make your way to the Dining Room in order to sign in. There will be a number of displays indicating the locations of different staff members. Please ensure that you are waiting at the correct teacher at the correct time. The appointments will be five minutes long and the appointment begins at the allotted time of booking.  There will be a countdown. The appointment cannot be extended; when the school bell is sounded, the appointment will draw to a close. Parents and Carers will then have five minutes to locate the next staff member. These arrangements are somewhat of a departure from the historic, in-person Parents Evenings. In response to parental feedback about wait times and to support staff well-being, we are wanting to be more disciplined with the timing of appointments. We realise that there may be occasions where conversations need to be continued; if this is the case, you can request a call back at the sign-in desk; this is to avoid appointment times becoming disorderly and inefficient. We would really appreciate parents and carers support with these arrangements.

Many Thanks

Laura Johnson
