Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

I hope this message finds you well. We would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming virtual Parent-Teacher Meeting, which will take place on our parent-teacher meeting platform. This event is of utmost importance as it provides you with an invaluable opportunity to connect with your child's teacher and discuss their academic progress at the school.

We are pleased to continue the implementation of a user-friendly online appointment booking system, which has been designed with your convenience and privacy in mind. This system addresses the privacy concerns associated with traditional, in-person meetings where sensitive conversations could potentially be overheard due to the large number of attendees. Moreover, it helps us comply with GDPR regulations, ensuring the protection of your personal information. Additionally, the logistics of parents traversing the school grounds to visit various classrooms are not practical, particularly given our school's size.

To ensure that your virtual Parent-Teacher Meeting is productive and informative, we kindly request that you consider the following guidelines:

  1. Prepare Questions: Take some time to think about any questions or concerns you may have about your child's academic progress, behaviour, or overall well-being at the school. Jot down these questions to help guide your discussion during the meeting.

  2. Review Your Child's Progress: Before the meeting, review any recent reports or assessments provided by the school. This will help you have a better understanding of your child's performance and areas that may need attention.

  3. Be Punctual: Please log in to the virtual meeting platform a few minutes before your scheduled appointment time to ensure a smooth start and make the most of your allocated time.

  4. Take Notes: Consider keeping a notepad handy to jot down important information or action items discussed during the meeting. This will help you remember any recommendations or next steps.

You may begin scheduling your appointments as of today, and the booking window will remain open until noon on the day of your assigned meeting. To book your appointments, please visit our dedicated booking platform at You will need to log in using the following information:

  • Your child's first name

  • Surname

  • Date of birth

In rare cases, parents have encountered difficulties while logging in, often due to discrepancies in the date of birth stored in our database. If you encounter any issues, please do not hesitate to contact the school office for prompt assistance. To assist you with the booking process, we have included a user guide along with this letter:
