Years 7 and 8 Online Parents’ Evening

The online Parents’ Evening for Years 7 and 8 will be held on Tuesday 8th June 2021 5:00-8:00pm

The booking system will be open from 9.30am Monday 26th May – 12noon Friday 4th June 2021.

Due to the current restrictions we are unable to offer face-to-face appointments therefore parents’ evening sessions will be online. The school is using the easy to use online appointment booking system called School Cloud. The system allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. We trialled this system in December 2020 and received positive feedback from parents and staff.

How to book:
Once the booking window is open please visit: https://oxfordspiresacademy.schoolcloud.co.uk to book your appointments. To log in you will need to use the information that we hold on our school data base (e.g. the same email address as your ParentMail account).

If you need any further assistance booking your appointments please do not hesitate to contact Ms Poyser who will be happy to help.
