Dear Parents and Carers,

We will be breaking up for half term on Friday 28th May and school will reopen on Monday 7th June.

As is tradition, we will be holding our Summer Term Parents’ Evening just before we break up.  Appointments will be held remotely, via Google Meets, which can be accessed easily through your child’s Google Classroom using their usual ‘class code’. Your child is very welcome to join you at the meeting.

Due to the current restrictions, we will be offering appointments across four afternoons: Monday 24th May, Tuesday 25th May, Wednesday 26th May and Thursday 27th May between 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. 

Appointments will be available for parents/carers of all children from Year 2 to Year 6 (EYFS and Year 1 classes are operating a different system for their parents’ meetings). Parents/carers of children who access Blossom should book an appointment with their child’s mainstream class teacher and Blossom staff will then contact you separately.

The booking system will be going live at 6:00 p.m. on Monday evening. It is important that you sign up for an appointment as this gives you an opportunity to discuss your child’s learning and achievements and ask any questions you may have.

All appointments will be 10 minutes long. We ask that parents/carers join the Google Meet at their exact appointment time (not before) so that each parent/carer has their full 10 minutes. We will be leaving 5 minute gaps between appointments so that timings can be kept on track.

We hope that parents and carers will welcome the opportunity to have an appointment via Google Meet which offers the face-to-face experience of our usual Parents’ Evening! If you are unable to meet in this way, please still book an appointment as we will be able to arrange a phone consultation instead. A form to sign up for a phone consultation will be sent out via ParentMail in the next few days.

Thank you for your support – we look forward to seeing you soon!
