Year 7 Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 20th April

Dear Parent / Carer

Year 7 Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 20th April - Online Appointment Booking

I would like to invite you to attend our Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 20th April. This is an important evening and will allow you to find out how your child is doing academically.  The consultations will take place between 4pm and 7pm and appointments last for five minutes. We expect all students to wear school uniform.

The school has introduced a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. We are confident this will be an improvement to the previous system and welcome any feedback.

Appointments can be made from now and will close at 23:55 PM on the 19th April. Should you wish to make any changes after this date please contact the school office.

Please visit https://neatherd.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your appointments. (Please see overleaf for a short guide on how to add appointments) Login with the following information:

Student’s First Name, Student’s Surname and their Date of Birth

We appreciate that this will not be easier for everyone. If you do not have access to the internet, please contact your son or daughter’s Head of House who will be happy to add appointments on your behalf. You can find a user guide to the new system overleaf, as well as the teacher’s locations on the evening.

The appointments take place in the Canteen and the Sports Hall, with access to the Sports Hall via the girls’ changing rooms; if you require any assistance with access of any nature then please make the school aware. 

As part of our role as a Food for Life Gold Award Flagship School, Neatherd is committed to ensuring that students have access to healthy and delicious food every day. Therefore, we would really appreciate it if you could take the time to complete our Food for Life Questionnaire which will hopefully give us a better insight into how you perceive our school canteen and the food that we offer to our students. The questionnaires will be distributed on the evening by Miss Ford.  Kindly return the completed questionnaires to the ‘Friends of Neatherd’, who will be located in the canteen. Thank you in advance for your continued support.

Yours sincerely

Nick O’Brien
Assistant Headteacher in charge of Behaviour, Safety and Attendance
