Dear Parent or Carer,

Re: Student Academic Counselling Day (SAC Day) Friday 26th November 2021

The Autumn Term Student Academic Counselling Day (SAC day) will take place between 8.30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Friday 26th November 2021.

In line with the preferences of the large majority of parents, SAC day will take place virtually again this year. The school has arranged for you to have a five-minute conversation with your child’s Tutor via video call to discuss your child’s progress this academic year. You will also electronically receive your child’s report in advance of your call. The report will include information on your child’s attendance, attitude to learning and academic progress.

Additionally, during the video call, targets will be set with you for the next academic year, to support your child to continue to maximise their progress and achievement at Kingsford.

For this day to be a success and to facilitate your child’s continued good and better academic performance, it is imperative that we have the support of all parents via parental attendance on the video call. Please note, that some Tutors may be able to make appointments from 8:00 a.m. or up to 4.30 p.m. to accommodate a small number of parents.

There will be no lessons at the school site for students in Years 7-10 on Friday 26th November 2021. Lessons will be delivered remotely on this day in order for all Tutors to speak with parents. Where possible, it is desirable that pupils are involved in the conversation between parents and tutors. After the discussion, the school would be grateful if parents can discuss with their child the proposed targets which have been agreed.

You will be able to book an appointment with your child’s tutor using our parent portal, EduLink; once you have logged into your EduLink account, you will need to click on the ‘Parents’ Evening’ icon and then on the event entitled ‘SAC Day’ and a list of available appointments for your child’s Tutor should appear. To book an appointment, simply click on the box next to the time and confirm by clicking ‘Book’. If you have more than one child at Kingsford, you will have to book appointments with each of their Tutors; you can switch between your children on EduLink by selecting their names in the top right-hand corner. If you have any problems accessing the event via EduLink, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the school at The school will endeavour to provide interpreters to enable every parent to participate effectively in the SAC Day. If you need an interpreter for the day, please put a note in your child’s planner by no later than Monday 22nd November 2021.

Thank you for your attention and co-operation in this matter.

We look forward to speaking with you.

Yours sincerely,

J Deslandes
