Dear Parent / Carer
Year 8A Parents’ Evening - Online Appointment Booking
I would like to invite you to attend our Parents’ Evening on Wednesday, 21 April, 3:30pm to 6:30pm via video call, to discuss your child’s progress and help to inform your decisions for the forthcoming Guided Choices process. Please use the online appointment booking system to book appointments. The online booking system allows you to choose your own appointment times with relevant teachers. You will receive an e-mail confirming your appointments once you have completed the booking process.
The help sheet here will provide you with further guidance on booking an appointment and holding a video call through our Parents’ Evening online system. There is now the possibility for two parents / carers to attend the Parents’ Evening from two different locations, which is explained at the end of the guide.
Video call (with or without your camera on) is very much our preferred method of communication for the evening, but if you do not have the technology at home to support video calls, at the point of booking your appointment, please add a message for the teacher, requesting e-mail communication instead. Please note that e-mails, where requested, are usually sent by teachers after the main Parents’ Evening has taken place.
Appointments can be made from Friday, 2 April and will close at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, 20 April. Should you wish to make any changes after this date please contact the school office. Please visit https://bhcs.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your appointments. Login is completed with the following information:
Student’s Legal First Name
Student’s Legal Surname
Student’s Date of Birth
If you do not have access to the internet, please contact us at the school and we will be happy to add appointments on your behalf.
If you are unable to book to see a teacher as their appointment list is already full, please add your details to the waiting list facility on the online appointment booking system and the relevant member of staff will endeavour to contact you via e-mail to update you on your child’s progress following the Parents’ Evening.
This Parents’ Evening will support you and your child in helping to decide their Guided Choices. From 21 April, there will be a further webpage available to you which provides further information and videos about the courses on offer from September, in addition to the Guided Choices booklet and explanatory letter that you will already have received. We will send you further information about how to access the webpage after the Easter holidays.
