letter to y12 parents/carers re: parents evening

20th November 2020

Dear Parent/Carer

I would like to invite you to attend our Y12 Parents’ Evening on Thursday, 26th November, 4pm – 7pm.

At this very important stage of their education, we are keen to discuss with you your daughter/sons’ current working at grade in all subjects studied and the Autumn Monitoring report you will be receiving next week in advance of this event. In addition, we would like to set out our expectations in terms of Y12 and how you can support your son/daughter to achieve their full potential.

The college has introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers; full instructions on how to proceed are included on a separate sheet with this letter.

We would like you to book appointments with all teachers available to you, as many subjects will be taught by two different staff members.

In order to be able to take part in the parents’ evening, you will need access to the internet on a device with a camera and microphone.

To complete the registration screen please follow either:




Appointments can be made from Friday, 20th November 2020, from 12 noon and will close on Thursday, 26th November at 1pm.

Each appointment will begin promptly at the time chosen and will last for exactly six minutes, after which the call will be automatically disconnected. Please be aware that in certain cases, staff may need to turn off their camera function, meaning that the meeting will be conducted audio only.

Here at Cowley Sixth Form College, we pride ourselves on the academic achievement of all our students and the support on offer to help them to progress on to their next chapter after college. Central to this is a having a strong partnership between staff, parents and their daughter/son. Therefore, I do hope you take this opportunity to attend the evening and show support for this partnership.

Finally, please be aware that by taking part in this video parents’ evening event, you are agreeing to abide by the school’s ICT policy and relevant GDPR legislation. In accordance with GDPR, no recording of conversations is permitted.
