Parents Evenings

Information Evenings and Parents Evenings 2020-2021

We are using a system called School Cloud to run our parents events remotely this year. Our year 7 information evening will be the first attempt at this so we will be interested in feedback about how effective it has been.

 

Our School Cloud account is: https://stannesuk.schoolcloud.co.uk/ 

 

We plan for all our parents evenings for the year to use the same system. Look out for an email a week or so ahead of the evening to explain how to log on. For information, the parents evenings for the year are currently planned as follows.

All parents evenings are from 16:00-19:00

Some tips from other parents:

  • These appointments are 5 minutes long to enable as many parents as possible to have an appointment.
  • Be aware that they will end automatically at the end of the appointment.
  • As the 5 minute slot is only available at the appointed time, it is important to be logged in and ready to start ahead of the first appointment so that time is not lost in the first appointment sorting out technical issues.
  • Remember to click the blue "Start Appointment" button when you are ready to begin and the teacher will join you when they are ready.
  • In order to make video calls you need to have as a minimum:
    • a device with a microphone and speaker/headphones
    • a compatible up-to-date web browser:
      • iPhone/iPad: Safari
      • Android: Chrome or Firefox
      • Windows: Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft Edge (Chromium - download here)
      • Mac: Safari, Chrome or Firefox
      • Linux: Chrome or Firefox
  • We also recommend:
    • Using your smartphone for video appointments. If you don't have a smartphone with a front-facing camera, use a laptop or computer with a webcam.
    • Using a headset (or earphones with a microphone) to reduce echo.

 

 

If a parent needs support with getting on to the system to book an appointment, please email our student services administrator, Ellie Herd, on info@st-annes.uk.com.

 

 

If parents want to give us feedback (good, bad or indifferent) about the process of using School Cloud, please email consultation@st-annes.uk.com and put the heading "Parents Evening" after the evening so we can tweak to improve for future parents evenings.
