Year 7 Virtual Parental Engagement Evening – Wednesday 17th November 2021 2.50pm – 7.30pm
I am writing to inform you that we have our Parental Engagement Evening on Wednesday 17th November 2021. Personal tutors will spend the afternoon/evening conducting online interviews with tutees and their parents/carers.
The primary purpose of this parental engagement evening will be to help personal tutors develop a closer working relationship with parents/carers and strengthen the partnership between home and school. Tutors will work with parents and students to identify what needs to happen to make good progress during this academic year.
This will involve looking at the current report, which you will receive before the day, and negotiating a set of targets which will enable your child to build on his/her achievements so far. Following the interview with parents/carers, tutors will continue to monitor progress by meeting with students individually each half term. Encouragement and support in achieving targets will continue to be given on a regular basis.
This year we will continue to use an online booking system for making appointments. Add this link to your browser https://biddenham.parentseveningsystem.co.uk and you will be taken directly to the login page. Then enter your details and your child’s details as required on the login screen. You will need to use the first name and surname in full as it is recorded on our school system and your child’s date of birth. Bookings will open on Wednesday 3rd November and will close at 3.30pm on Tuesday 16th November. The link can also be accessed via email and the school website. However, should there be any problems with this please telephone Monika Skrzypacz on 01234 342521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The appointments will take place online through the Parents’ Evening System and are accessible through most mobile and laptop devices. Please click this link to take you to the parent guide for more details. We are happy to offer telephone appointments if that is preferable, just call to let us know.
Communication between home and school is vitally important. We truly value your cooperation and support with our virtual approach to parents’ evening.

Head of Year 7
