Virtual Parent Evenings


Year 10 Parents Evening, Thursday 3rd March 2022 - Online Appointment Booking


Dear Parent/Carer

I would like to invite you to attend our Parents’ Evening on Thursday 3rd March between
3.30 and 6.30pm. This is an important evening and provides you with an opportunity to
discuss your child’s progress so far this year.


As you may be aware, we have introduced a new, intuitive and easy to use online video
appointment booking system for Parents’ Evening. This allows you to choose your own
appointment times with teachers and you will be sent an email confirming your
appointment times.


The time limit on the system is set at 5 minutes per appointment and the system will
automatically end each call on 5 minutes (you do have a timer on the screen so you will
be aware of how long is left) This will enable staff to see all those who wish to make
appointments. Due to the strict timings we are asking the following:


✓ Please pre-populate any questions you have and add them as a note on to your
appointment. This will give staff time to ensure they can address your requests
✓ If you haven’t sent them as a note, ensure you are ready to ask them at the start of
the appointment as this will be the opportunity for this
✓ You will start the meeting by the start prompt on the screen – if you are late to do
this, it will mean you have less time available to speak with the staff member.
✓ You will receive your child’s Character Report on Friday 25th February, this Parents’
Evening will give you an opportunity to discuss their academic progress.


Appointments can be made from Tuesday 22th February at 8.45am and will close on
Thurs 3rd March at 11am. Should you wish to make any changes after this date please
contact us through the portal.


Please visit https://upholland.schoolcloud.co.uk to book your appointments.

If you previously created an account, the same log-in details will apply. A short guide on how to
add appointments is included with this letter and further information and guidance videos
are available on the school website under ‘Virtual Parents’ Evening’
If you do not have access to the internet, please contact us through the parent portal, but
be aware that the software will also work on a phone or tablet through the internet.


Yours sincerely


Mr S Priestley       
Lead for Behaviour & Attitudes
