Appointments will last strictly for 5 minutes each and they will automatically cut off at the end of your time slot. You will then move on to your next appointment. Teachers can not extend this time, it is a feature of the video call system. Therefore, if you have any specific questions for your son’s teachers, please add them as a message as you book each appointment so that staff can prepare a concise response in advance. Further details can be found within the instructions.
If you do not have Internet access, please phone school and ask to speak to Miss Mayall who will contact teachers on your behalf.
