Using SchoolCloud for Parents' Evenings

Parents' Evenings

Current circumstances make it difficult for us to hold our usual in person, in school Parents' Evenings. This is a shame as students enjoy bringing their parents to see their school and both staff and parents enjoy meeting one another. Being able to put names to faces, discuss how best to support an individual's learning and provide valuable feedback on a child's progress at school are elements of parents' evening we would like to try and maintain at this challenging time.

Therefore, we have invested in a service called SchoolCloud which allows us to hold virtual Parents' Evenings online. Through SchoolCloud you can make appointments with your child's teachers and speak with them via videocall over the internet.

The video, documentation and links on this page explain how that works. Please view the video on the left, read the instructions below and click the link to take you to our SchoolCloud site. SchoolCloud will match the details you input to those held on our systems. If you are unable to log in, please contact the school to check that the details we hold are up to date.

All students at Woodham have specialist teachers for each of the 3 sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), but it would not be possible for each teacher to speak to all the students they teach. Therefore for Parents' Evening each class has been assigned to one teacher to make appointments with. They will liase with the other teachers for that class in order to be able to give a full picture of your child's progress. The assigned teacher will appear as your child's Biology teacher on SchoolCloud, and Chemistry and Physics will not be visible for this reason.

Appointments for Students in Key Stage 4 will last for 5 minutes, appointments for students in Key Stage 3 are 4 minutes.
