Year 9 Parents’ Consultation

From 9am on Saturday 5th of March, parents are invited to make appointments with subject staff via Edulink.

Dear parents and carers,

We would like to invite you to the year 9 Parents’ Consultation Evening on Thursday 31st March which will take place between 16:30 - 18:30.

Please be aware that appointments for this event will take place via EduLink video call. Guidance for parents accessing the evening can be found below.

From 9am on Saturday 5th of March, parents are invited to make appointments with subject staff via Edulink. The appointments will close to parents at noon on Monday 28th March. To access the event, please click the Parents’ Evening icon and then click on the description of the evening; you will then be able to book your appointments with staff.

Full written reports will also be made available to you before the event for you to read before booking appointments. We will inform you when reports go live on EduLink in the documents section.

This consultation is a great opportunity for you to discuss your child’s progress and ask any questions you may have about the courses that they are studying. Students are also welcome to be on the call too, please encourage them to join.

If you are not yet logged onto Edulink it is vital that you are ; you will be unable to make any appointments with subject staff unless it is done through Edulink. If you have any issues with this please contact Mr Daly via email: [email protected] 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Hickinbottom
Head of Year 9 ([email protected])


What to do on the day:

Once you have set up the event and all the bookings have been made, participants will see a start appointments button when clicking on the event.

When clicking on the START APPOINTMENT button the meeting screen will appear. The remote video box will remain blank until it’s time to connect, but you will be able to see your picture in the local video box. You can turn your video and sound on and off if needed with the controls

The event will start automatically then auto navigate between the appointments without the need for user input. When the countdown gets to 30 seconds the time will turn red and as a warning at 15 seconds the border of the remote video box starts to flash red. 

Once all of the appointments have taken place ‘There are no appointments’ message is displayed and the window can be closed. The following link will show you how to book and access the appointments:
