As face to face Parent Teacher meetings are still not recommended this year, we are going to hold them online through Microsoft Teams again. You can use your own Teams account which can be downloaded to your phone, tablet or laptop, or you can use your son/daughter’s school Teams account.
How does it work?
To input your preferences for the teachers you would like to meet, please click on the button below and enter your child’s Student ID, which was given to your son/daughter on a sticker in school to stick into their journals. If they were absent when the ID numbers were given out or have misplaced it, please follow the instructions on the link further down the page to obtain this ID number. Once in the system, put 1 beside the teacher you would most like to see, 2 beside the teacher you would next most like to see and so on.
The button below will become live with all of the links to the teachers’ meetings just before the meeting. Click on the link beside the appropriate teacher at the allocated time.
How to find my child’s VSware ID
If you are having difficulty, don’t worry. Just call the office on 0539135257. The system will be open until 1pm on Wednesday 12 January.
What will happen on the night?
The button above “Join the Meeting” will become live shortly before the meeting. It will bring you to a list of teachers. Simply click on the link beside the teachers name at the timetabled time.
Timetables can be found by clicking on the button above and logging back in to the system. A printed copy will be sent home with students whose parents have registered by 1pm on Wednesday 12 January.
How long is each meeting?
Each meeting will be 5 minutes long. While it is likely that you will have plenty of breaks, some teachers will have none due to the large volume of parents to see. For this reason it is very important that you are on time and the meeting finishes on time.
What if I have a problem during the meeting?
From the research I have conducted, the feedback from parents who have used this system is very positive and there have been very few problems. Most problems are device specific and trying out the sample link at the top of the page here should alert you to any potential problems that may occur on the night. In the unlikely event that you run into difficulty, we will be available in school to help out if I can. 0539135257
