Year 8 Parents' and Carers' Evening - 10 Feb 2021

Year 8 Parents’ and Carers’ Evening

Wednesday 10 February 2021 (4:00pm – 7.00pm)

As we continue to adapt to ways of working in these socially-distanced times, we have arranged for the upcoming Parents’ and Carers’ Evening to be held remotely, using School Cloud.Not only will appointments need to be booked electronically, but then the appointments will also be held using video conferencing systems.This system worked very well for us on our last event, but we are also aware of local schools who have experienced issues with a range of online Parents’ Evening providers – if this does happen, we will communicate with parents/carers as quickly as possible.  Dependent on timing of any issues we will follow up accordingly so no opportunities for discussion are missed.  We hope this is a case of “Plan for the worst, hope for the best”.

You can log in by visiting https://destafford.schoolcloud.co.uk/ (also in the Quick Links on the school website).We have attached two guides which should support you in the process.It is important,when you log in, that you use the same email address you received this email to and that, when entering your child’s name, you use their ‘preferred name’. 

The booking system is open from 6.00pm on 3 February 2021 and will close at 9.00pm on Monday 8 February 2021. We are aware that this evening may help inform some of the decisions that your son/daughter may make with regard to their Option Choices.  We are also aware that certain colleagues teach a high proportion of the Year 8 cohort and will book up quickly.  In addition to your son’s/daughter’s core curriculum, we advise that you book appointments with potential subject choices as a priority.

Please remember that this is not your only opportunity to make contact with your son’s/daughter’s subject teachers.We encourage ongoing dialogue and teachers, SAMs, and the Heads of Year are available throughout the year to discuss progress and attainment via email (a full list of email addresses can be found on the school website) or by telephone. 

If you have any issues or questions regarding this process please contact Amanda Robinson, in the Head of Year office, on amanda.robinson@destafford.org.uk 

Thank you for your continued support and your cooperation whilst we continue get used to these new required ways of facilitating events. 

Yours sincerely 

 

 Jeff Place, Head of School
