Parents’ Evening for S1 pupils takes place on Thursday 8th November from 5pm – 7.30pm. This is an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with staff. Please note we are now utilising an electronic appointment system as follows.
The online appointment booking system allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. You can choose to either print your appointment sheet off at home or bring your mobile device to see your appointments electronically. Full details of the booking system will be contained in the letter given to pupils today and a link to the booking guide is available here
Appointments can be made from Thursday 1st November and will close before the Parents’ Evening, at 12pm on Wednesday 7th November.
Parents are not required to attend for the entire evening.
Please think about prioritising appointments with specific teachers. Due to the high number of pupils seeking appointments, it may not always be possible to see all of your child’s teachers during the evening. If you are unable to make an appointment with a teacher then please let us know and we can arrange for the member of staff to contact you at an appropriate time. Please remember to bring your appointments with you to Parents’ Evening.
On your arrival at The James Young High School, you will be able to pick up a room allocation sheet which will have clear instructions about where to find specific departments at the sign in desk. Departments have been allocated rooms in the English department (ground floor), Maths department (first floor) and Social Education department (Languages). To help the running of the evening we would respectfully ask everyone to keep to five minute appointments.
