Parent Teacher Meetings – How to Join

We’ve been delighted to see the hundreds of bookings for our online parent consultations coming in. The teachers are all looking forward to catching up with you.

The time you selected when you booked the appointment will be the time you are allocated. We will be posting the list of times within the class teams (see below) on Thursday afternoon.

Hopefully you all know by now that meeting will take place on Teams, and you will need to log on using your child’s account details.

Open the Microsoft Teams app on your device of choice. If you don’t have it, you can get it for free here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-teams/download-app

Select your child’s class team (e.g. REC – FOREST)

The meeting is listed in the General channel in the Posts section, e.g. “Forest Class Parent Consultations”. If meeting are in progress, there will be a purple block stating “Meeting Now”

Click “Join”.

The next screen allows you to turn you camera an microphone on. Please do.

Again, you will need to click “Join now“. You will be admitted when your time slot begins.

For help with logging on to Teams for the first time and getting to the right place, take a look at this video:

Tips:

Join a few minutes early to allow for tech hiccups. Meetings must finish on time, even if they start late.

The meeting will not be in year group teams; they will take place in class teams. example: Not Year 4, but 4 SAVANNAH.

At the end of your meeting, please press the red button the leave:

See you soon!
