Year 11 Parents' Evening

Thursday 20th Janaury 16:00 - 19:00

Appointments will take place remotely via video call. This is an opportunity to speak with your child's subject teachers and ask any questions you may have. As for all parents’ evenings, your child is also asked to participate in the appointments.

We would be very grateful if you could read the details in the Video Appointments section carefully prior to the evening commencing.

Booking System

To access the SchoolCloud appointment booking system (https://ilkley.schoolcloud.co.uk/) please use the login details issued. We advise you to make your appointments promptly as popular times are booked quickly and some teachers are likely to be oversubscribed. If you use the automatic appointment scheduler, please review your list of appointments afterwards to ensure all subjects have been included. Please also note that the requirement for travel time has been removed, so the system will allow you to book all your appointments without a break, subject to teachers having slots available. However, you are welcome to build in breaks between appointments if preferred. If you are having difficulty logging in, please email parentsevenings@ilkleygs.co.uk or call the main school office on 01943 608424 for assistance. Please also inform us if you are unavailable on the evening by logging into the booking system and selecting ‘I’m unable to attend’.

Science

For science you will see one of the individual science teachers but will receive feedback for all three subjects. In this case, you will be allocated a slightly longer appointment. However, if your child is studying Separate (Triple) Science you will be able to see all three teachers.

Careers

If you would like to discuss your son/daughter’s Post 16 Pathway, please make an appointment with either our Careers Adviser, Mrs Mitchell, or the Independent Careers Adviser, Mrs Crowther.

Video Appointments

When you book your appointments, you will receive an automatic confirmation email. Within this message you will find a link to login to the system and join the video calls on the day of the appointments. You will need to confirm the students date of birth and will then see a green ‘Join Video Appointments’ button. This will activate 60 minutes before your first appointment. Alternatively, you can access your SchoolCloud account via the main login screen again. If convenient, we would recommend that you click the green button well in advance of your first appointment, as this would highlight any compatibility issues and allow time for you to try an alternative device if possible. If you experienced any technical issues with your preferred device during the Meet the Tutor Evening video calls, we would recommend that you use the student iPad to login to the system. You will require a microphone and speaker, together with a compatible browser and ideally a camera, but further guidance and information can be found on the SchoolCloud website here.

We look forward to speaking with you on 20th January but if you have any particular queries relating to the evening, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
