Year 12 (Year 13 Targetted) Parent & Student Evening

Year 12 (and Targeted Year 13)  Parent & Student Evening – Thursday 18 March 2021

We would like to invite you to meet via video call with your child’s subject teachers at the Year 12 (and Targeted Year 13) Online Parent and Student Evening on Thursday 18 March 2021 from 4:00pm-7:00pm.

We invite you to make appointments to see your child’s teachers on Thursday 18 March 2021 from 4:00pm - 7:00pm.  Please use our existing parent and student evening booking system to book appointments, on a first come first served basis, by visiting https://thurstoncollege.parentseveningsystem.co.uk/. The window for booking online appointments opens on Monday 8 March 2021 and closes on Wednesday 17 March 2021.  If you find that a member of staff is fully booked, please add your details to the waiting list and we will contact you. 

The format of the evening will be similar to the previous face-to-face parent and student evenings, however please note the information below: 

The duration of each appointment is ten minutes, there will be a minute gap between each appointment to allow transition time to and from the next appointment.  A countdown at the bottom of the screen will indicate the minutes remaining on the call. To begin the appointment both the staff member and the parent/carer will need to click ‘start meeting’. 

Please click on the link below to a  ‘Parent's Evening Video Call Guide’ for further information. https://vimeo.com/473882995?from=outro-embe

There is the added feature now that each video call can now involve up to two parents/carers on separate devices. As you make your bookings, click the button to 'Invite Parent/Guardian', and enter the email address of the other parent/carer and an invite will  be sent which grants access to the call. The additional parent then clicks the link in the email to join the appointments. Full details of how it works are explained the guide:

If you are expecting difficulties (eg: very weak internet connection) with holding online appointments, please email Tward@thurstoncollege.org.

To enable the appointments to be as beneficial as possible it is helpful if you can indicate, at the time of booking, any specific questions you would like answered.  To this end, you may wish to view the most up to date information on your child’s GO4Schools profile (www.go4schools.com) in advance of the meeting.  We encourage your child to attend the appointment also.
