Dear Parent or Carer, 

Re: Year 11 Parents Consultation Evening  

Thursday 25th November 2021 – 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

The school will be holding a Parents Consultation Evening for parents and carers of Year 11 pupils on Thursday 25th November 2021 from 3:30 pm. to 6:30 pm. This event will be held remotely via the EduLink platform. For this Parents Consultation Evening, you must be registered on the EduLink platform in order to access the event and speak to your child’s teachers. Please ensure that you register immediately if you have not yet done so (see below).  Following the positive feedback from parents and staff using the EduLink platform last year it has been decided to continue using this to make the event as efficient and impactful in supporting your child’s educational development.

The aim of this evening is to provide constructive verbal feedback on your child’s current GCSE attainment and progress, as indicated in their interim Autumn Term academic report. During the appointment time with each of your child’s subject teachers, you will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and attainment during this academic year thus far. If a subject teacher particularly wishes to see you they will request an appointment with you. Your child’s subject teachers will also provide guidance for your child’s upcoming Pre-Public GCSE Examinations that your child will undertake in December 2021.  

It is strongly advised that you participate in the evening, as it is an excellent opportunity to talk with teachers about your child’s education. You will be aware the government has stated that GCSE exams will be returning this academic year. It is therefore essential that your child maintains a rigorous focus on their GCSE studies and fully engages with their education. By doing so, your child will be in a position to be awarded the best possible GCSE grades that are an authentic reflection of your child’s ability and subject performance. 

Booking appointments with your child’s teachers

This event will take place via video conferencing on the school’s parent portal, ‘EduLink One’. You must download the EduLink App onto your electronic device/mobile phone and log into your account. Once you have logged into your EduLink account, you will need to click on the ‘Parents’ Evening’ icon and then on the event entitled ‘Year 11 Parents Consultation Evening’; a screen will appear, providing a list of all of your child subjects and teachers. You can select your appointment time for each teacher by clicking on their name and then on your desired timeslot.  Please make your bookings by no later than Monday 22nd November 2021.

During the Parents Consultation Evening

Please note that your appointment with each subject teacher will last for 5 minutes and will automatically deactivate when the time has expired. 

If you have any problems accessing this event or logging into your EduLink account, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the school at communications@kingsford.newham.sch.uk.  

We look forward to meeting with you on Thursday 25th November 2021. 

Yours sincerely,
