The school uses an online Parents' Evening booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment time with your child’s class teacher and you will receive an email confirming your appointment.
To book an appointment, click on the following link: School Cloud Booking System
You will be asked to login with the following information:
Your Title; Your First Name; Your Surname; Your Email Address;
Your Child’s Preferred First Name; Your Child’s Surname; Your Child’s Date of Birth
If you do not have access to the internet, or you have any difficulty accessing the booking system, please contact the school office who will be happy to add appointments on your behalf.
There is only one appointment available per child. If you need to split the appointment, please notify the school office. These meetings are for parents only.
Five minutes before your video appointment, click the login link from the bottom of the email confirmation you received when you booked, or log in via the School Cloud Booking System link.
Please note that although appointments are offered in 10 minute slots, your actual appointment will be for 9 minutes, to allow time for the teacher to make any notes before her next appointment.
Once logged in you will see a notice that you have upcoming video appointments and under this the details of the event, along with a Join Video Appointments button. This will become available 60 minutes before your first appointment.
When you click Join Video Appointments the video call screen will be displayed. You may at this point be asked if you wish to allow access to your camera/microphone, in which case please click yes.
On this screen you can see the following:
Click the Start Appointment button. You will see yourself in the bottom right corner of the screen (unless you have no camera, or have chosen to turn it off). If the teacher has not yet joined you will see a notice to that effect in the centre of the screen.
You may give another parent/carer access to join your video appointment if you prefer to be on separate computers or live at different addresses. Once you have made your appointment, click on Invite Parent/Guardian at the top of the list of your bookings. Enter the details of the parent/guardian being invited, and click on Send Invite
When a teacher joins a call you will see them in the main part of the screen - or hear them, if they have no camera (or have turned it off) - and can start you discussion with them.
You will also see the remaining time for the appointment counting down in the blue bar at the top of the screen.
If you lose access to the system for some reason during the call, log in again and click Start Appointment on the video call screen. As long as the teacher is still in the call this will let you continue with the appointment (this is the same for the teacher if they lose their access).
When the countdown in the blue bar stops the appointment time is over and the call will automatically end.
Note that if you are late, or leave and rejoin the call, it does not reset the timer.
The appointment will always end at the scheduled time.
