Year 7 Parent Teacher Virtual Appointments

Father And Teenage Son Having Discussion With Female Teacher At High School Parents Evening

Dear Parent/Carer

On Wednesday 7th July, you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their subject teachers, during the Year 7 parent/teacher appointments.  These 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 2.30pm and 7.00pm 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 and carers to book appointments as possible, we have a limit of 8 appointments per student. Bookings will open on Wednesday 30th 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.

find out how to access School Cloud and book your appointments  

On the afternoon of the appointment, simply attend by following the guide to accessing video appointments.  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 and we will be of assistance.

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
