Parents' evenings 2022/23
Parents’ evenings for the academic year 2022/23 will be online events on the dates below for each individual year group. These evenings are a crucial part of the support process for our students. They present an opportunity to have a discussion with your child’s teachers about their progress. We will therefore be sharing further information with families nearer the time for each evening so that these conversations can take place.
Y8 parents’ evening Monday 23 January 2023 and Tuesday 24 January 2023
Y11 parents’ evening Tuesday 7 February 2023 and Wednesday 8 February 2023
Y10 parents’ evening Tuesday 21 February 2023 and Wednesday 22 February 2023
Y9 parents’ evening Wednesday 1 March 2023 and Thursday 2 March 2023
Y7 parents’ evening Wednesday 15 March 2023 and Thursday 16 March 2023
Parents’ evenings will take place over two evenings this year. This is to allow teachers who work on a part time basis to attend these events. The majority of teachers will be available to book appointments with on the first date (priority night) listed above. Some teachers will be available on the second date (secondary night) listed above. SchoolCloud will show clearly which staff are available on which evening.
For the year 7 and 8 parents' evenings will we open the 'window' for booking appointments for a smaller number of appointments first so that all parents have an opportunity to make appointments with some teachers they wish to see before we then open the window for the second round of booking appointments. Some teachers teach more than one class in a year and do not have enough appointments to see each students' family. See below the dates for the booking 'windows'. The restriction of appointments will only apply for the priority night.
For year 9 evenings we prioritise PE GCSE and business GCSE appointments with teaching staff over core PE and enterprise appointments, due to the high number of students taking these GCSE subjects, so again will open the booking 'window' earlier for GCSE appointments and then, at a later date, for the core PE and enterprise appointments. Full dates are listed below and further details will be sent in letters nearer each parents' evening.
For years 10 and 11 we will prioritise PE GCSE over core PE and this will be the only restriction to booking appointments.
Appointments will be available between approximately 3.50pm and 7pm for majority of teachers. The times available will be shown clearly on SchoolCloud once this opens for appointments. Some teachers may have small changes to their start/end times and therefore may have appointments available slightly earlier or later than the times stated above but will all offer the same number of appointments.
Letters for each evening will be available below once they have been emailed to parents/carers.
Appointment booking 'windows'.
Appointments are made via SchoolCloud and dates for the appointment booking 'windows' are listed below. Further details will be sent out prior to each parents' evening and we will send reminders via ParentMail of these dates.
The first column of dates (in orange) is when you can access SchoolCloud to start making appointments. The second column of dates (in green) shows when you can go back into SchoolCloud to book your remaining appointments. The final column of dates (in red) is when SchoolCloud will close for appointments. This is just prior to the parents' evening being held on the day.
