Year 9 Parents’ Evening Online Appointment Booking

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

We would like to invite you to attend our Year 9 Parents’ Evening on either Wednesday 17 March 2021 (2:30 – 6:00pm) or Thursday 18 March 2021 (3:30 – 6:00pm). This will provide a valuable opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and how you can support your child to make the best choices to match their future ambitions. 

SchoolCloud Parents’ Evening Booking

Due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Parents’ Evening will take place virtually using our new SchoolCloud system.  SchoolCloud allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers, which are confirmed via an accompanying email.  To maximise availability of appointments, we have taken the decision to offer parents/carers a choice of times across two days: Wednesday 17 March 2021 and Thursday 18 March 2021. You will only be required to book one appointment with your son/daughter’s teacher on one day. 

Due to some staff teaching multiple classes in this year group, it may not be possible to meet every teacher. We therefore strongly advise that you make an appointment to see the core subjects (English, Maths and Science), your child’s preferred optional subjects/subjects they are most interested in for their curriculum choices.

To book appointments, please visit https://wilmingtonacademy.schoolcloud.co.uk. You will find attached to this letter a parental information guide on how to book appointments easily or go to the following link for more information:

Appointments can be made from now to 5pm on Tuesday 16 March 2021. Should you wish to make any changes after this date or are unable to book appointments, please contact Ms C Wood, our Parents’ Evening Administrator christine.wood@wilmingtonacademy.org.uk

SchoolCloud is a new system to the academy, so please bear with us as we trial out the new platform. We will be sending out a Google Feedback Form shortly after the Parents’ Evening and would appreciate your feedback and thoughts on the system. 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Ms C Quan

Assistant Principal
