Year 12 and 13 Progress Evening

Dear Parents and Carers

The Year 12 and 13 Progress Evening for parents will take place on Monday 18th December from 16.00pm until 19.15pm; this will be conducted via in-person appointments at All Saints’ School, but parents will still need to book their appointments online using the School Cloud facility below. The evening is an important opportunity to speak to your child’s teachers about the progress your child is making.

Booking Appointments using the School Cloud Website

You will be able to book appointments from 4th December at 9.00 am.

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

Parents and Carers, with School Cloud access, are those individuals who will have listed as Priority One and Two contacts on the admission form at the beginning of the academic year. It will be parents and guardians who have parental responsibility and that includes those with a court order in place.  It is important that both first and surname, and your child’s name and date of birth are inputted in the same way that it is on the school system.  If you are struggling to login, it may be because you are not listed as a Priority One or Two contact, do not have parental responsibility including a court order, or because there is spelling or numerical error on our system. In any of these cases, please contact, Mrs Scott with the nature of the problem:  By having both Priority One and Two contacts, it means that parents/ carers, who may live separately, can both be involved in finding out about their child’s progress.

At login, you will be asked for an email address; this is not authenticated with the email address that you listed on your child’s admission form at the start of the year; it is merely for School Cloud to send a confirmation email to you when you have successfully booked and saved your appointments.

The instructions at the end of the letter outline how to access the website in order to book appointments.

During the Evening- *Important Changes*

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 six 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 six 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.
