Year 10 Virtual Parents Evening

Dear Parent/ Carer,


Year 10 Parents Evening – 16th February 2022

2.30 – 7.15pm


Year 10 Virtual Parent’s Evening will take place on Wednesday 16th February with the first appointment starting at 2.30pm and the final appointment being 7.15pm. Bookings will close Tuesday 15th February at 12pm.


The virtual system, School Cloud, can be accessed through the existing parents evening booking system via the parent portal on the Newman website.


Appointments will be open for booking from Friday 28th January. We ask that your child appears on screen with you, with the video turned on. Please have their latest progress check to hand to discuss this with teachers. The progress check will be received in the post prior to parents evening.


We strongly advise that you check your web browser is up-to-date and compatible in advance of the evening. We advise you do this before your appointment, and you can do so by selecting ‘join video appointment’ and then ‘test camera/microphone’. If you have any technical issues, please email ithelp@newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk no later than Tuesday 15th February.


Appointments are bookable in five-minute slots with each member of staff that teaches your child. The video will count down as soon as the time starts. If you are late for your allotted appointment you cannot claim back the time lost. The video begins to countdown from the start of the appointment and ends after five minutes; you will see a countdown at the top of the screen. Mr Collinge and Miss Foy from our SEN team will also be available but appointments with them are not compulsory. These will be available along with your regular appointments.


Appointments are first come, first served. Appointments must be booked in advance. You will not be able to log on and see a staff member without a booked time slot. Meetings must not be recorded; it would be illegal to do so. If you wish to arrange an appointment to speak to a member of our safeguarding team please email K.McLaughlin@newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk


A guide to booking appointments and a guide to using the video system can be found on our website.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Year 10 Academic Co-Ordinator, Mrs McLaughlin K.McLaughlin@newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk


Yours faithfully,


Mr D. Maxwell – Senior Assistant Headteacher for Achievement
