Parent Teacher Meetings Online Guidance

3rd Year Online Parent Teacher Meeting

15th December 4.15pm - 6.45pm

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This year, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we cannot carry out parent-teacher meetings in the traditional manner.

However, we understand the importance for staff and parents to communicate and discuss the progress of their son in school and to facilitate this, our parent-teacher meeting will take place online using the Zoom meeting software.

To facilitate these online meetings, the school will be using PTMOrganiser software which enables parents to book appointment slots with teachers. PTMOrganiser is a web-based system that allows parents to enter their time of preference for these appointments.

You must log on promptly to organise your appointments slots. Your appointments list is created by you choosing your appointments in order of your preferences.

Closing date for selection of preferences is Wednesday 8th December at 4pm.

To select your preferences please follow the instructions below.

  1. Log In

Log in to www.ptmorg.com and click on parent/guardian log in.

  1. Enter our school roll number 63750B followed by your son’s VSware ID number. Both were issued to your son in recent days. Please call the school on 04333 46469 if you have not received it.

The Zoom links for the meetings will be sent to your son’s subject class folder on Google Classroom and e mailed to parents on the morning of the meeting .

Join the zoom meeting for the teacher at the time assigned. Parents will be directed to a waiting room where the teacher will allow parents to enter the meeting room.

Please ensure that you sign into Zoom under your own name so the teacher can allow you enter the meeting.

Each meeting slot is a maximum of five minutes long. This is to ensure all parents have an opportunity to speak to the teacher.

If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate in getting in contact with the school. Thank you for your cooperation and support with this new initiative.
