Year 7 Virtual Parents’ Evening June 2022

We are holding a Parents’ Evening via video conferencing software for Year 7 on Monday 13th June, between 3.30pm and 6.30pm. The software we use is provided by SchoolCloud and you will be able to register and make appointments using this link:

djcs.schoolcloud.co.uk

To register and to make an appointment you will need the following information:

  • Your title, as held on the school system – i.e. Miss, Ms, Mrs, Mr, Dr, etc…
  • Your surname, as held on the school system.
  • The date of birth of your child.

The appointment system will be accessible from 12.00pm on Monday 6th June and will close at 12.00pm on Thursday 9th June. We will send reminders via SchoolCloud to you of these times when bookings open and during the booking period if you haven’t made appointments.

One person should make the appointments but can then invite others if, for example, two parents or carers are not in the same physical location.

The system also allows you to turn on messaging during the call and send text based communication if this helps.

You can join the parents’ evening on any internet enabled device, for example a smartphone, tablet or computer. You can find out how to make and attend appointments via video call by following this link. Where possible we would advise people to use the latest browser and operating system on their device.

Appoints will be 4 minutes in length and you will be able to speak with one of the teachers of your child for the majority of their subjects.

The appointments will allow you to focus on the specific steps your children need to take between now and the end of the academic year to ensure their success.

All families should be able to make appointments with the teachers of English, Maths and Science. To facilitate this some staff are seeing students beyond the advertised hours and we thank them for this.

For some staff due to the volume of Year 7 students they teach it isn’t possible for them to see every family. Please attempt therefore to limit your appointments to those subjects you’re particularly interested in.

We look forward to seeing you,

Mr Wright
Deputy Headteacher
