Year 8 Parent Teacher Virtual Appointments

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Wednesday 16th June, you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their subject teachers, during the Year 8 parents/carers day. The parent/teacher meetings are an important part of your child’s education and you will be able to discuss how your child is performing in each of their subjects, with their subject teacher. Your child is expected to attend the meetings with you.

In light of the current pandemic, The Leigh Academy is not in a position to offer face-to-face appointments, however, we are able to offer video appointments via School Cloud, an online platform specialising in communication between parents/carers and school teachers.  The appointments will take place between 2:30p.m. and 7:00p.m. and are five minutes long.  Time slots are self-booked and are on a first come first served basis.   In order to allow as many parents/carers to book appointments as possible, we have placed a limit of eight appointments per student. Bookings will open on Wednesday 9th June at 12:00pm and close on Tuesday 15th June at 12:00pm. If you are unable to operate video meetings, please contact your child’s subject teacher so that other arrangements can be made.

Details of how to access School Cloud and book your appointments can be found here. On the afternoon of the appointment, simply attend by following the guide here. If after following the instructions, you experience technical difficulties with setting up your appointment, please do not hesitate to contact lisa.bodle@leighacademy.org.uk who will be able to assist you.

I hope that you find the opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers useful. I know that staff are looking forward to meeting virtually with you. 

Yours faithfully,

Julia Collins

Principal
