Y7 Parents Evening
Meet the subject teachers
3.45pm – 6.45pm Thursday 13th January 2022
Dear PCS families,
We would like to invite all parents/carers of our Year 7 students to make appointments to meet with your child’s teachers via a virtual “Google Meet” meeting. This meeting is an opportunity for you to discuss the progress your child has made in their subjects and most importantly how we can help them to achieve their target grade or beyond over the summer term.
How do I make appointments?
Appointments will take place between 3.45pm and 6.45pm on Thursday 13th January. You will be able to book an appointment time using the attached document. Within this document, you will have to select the appropriate teachers, click the link to their calendar and book by selecting available slots. For guidance on this please watch this loom -
Booking slots will be open from now. Please be aware that you will need a Gmail account to book appointments. If you do not have one and do not wish to set one up, please feel free to use your child’s school Gmail account if necessary.
Can I see all my child’s teachers?
In theory you can, but some teachers work with more than one Year 7 class, so may not be able to see everyone they teach. It can be helpful to prioritise 5 or 6 teachers you really need to see and if you can’t get an appointment slot with a teacher you really need to see, then please contact them and arrange another time that they can call you. You may wish to contact their mentor to co-ordinate this.
How long are appointments?
Each appointment is allocated 5 minutes. It can be frustrating for parents when appointments overrun, so if we can all be mindful of this that’s a good start. Parents’ evenings are not the time to resolve deep-seated issues. If you have a concern you wish to address that will take longer than 5 minutes then please make an appointment to see the member of staff concerned on another occasion.
Please contact Joe.firstname.lastname@example.org for any technical queries.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
