Parent Conferences

The booking for parent conferences is now closed. If you have forgotten to book you will need to email the teacher now to find an available slot. Please be reminded to arrive on time for your appointment and stick to your allotted 10 minute slot. Late parents will have less time as it is not fair on other parents to keep them waiting because parents are late or take more than their 10 minutes. If you think you need more time due to any issues it might be better to arrange a separate meeting with the teacher in order to explore the issues in more detail.
