Parents' Evening

    Just thought I would start a thread to gather thoughts about how schools may organise Parents' Evenings? We usually have one in the week before October Half Term and the school is rammed with people milling about. We see parents in our classrooms for 5 minutes and it's quite a rapid turnover. I suppose we'll know more next week but just thought I'd ponder aloud and invite people to speculate!

    The last one I did last term was by Google Meet. I wonder if some parents (teachers) might prefer that?

    We did last term's on Teams and the calendar for this coming term says they are on Teams as well.

    For the moment, I don’t think it’s viable at all. Perhaps, a half termly/termly report sent to parents highlighting pupil progress or an arranged phone call if there are serious concerns?

    I'm sure SLT are discussing it, but nothing has been said to us yet. Parents are not allowed on the school premises (to be reviewed at half term), all communication is by phone or email, so no prospect of a regular parents' evening for the time being.

    Voice recordings for each child and then sent to parents.
