Dear Parent/Carer

RE:  ONLINE YEAR 11 PARENTS’ EVENING

Due to the current lockdown situation due to Covid-19, we have planned an online Parents’ Evening for our Year 11 students.  Meetings will be booked online and will take place via a video link, preventing the need to visit the Academy at this time.  We know how important it is for you and your child to discuss their education at this critical time for them and this is the best and safest way for us to enable that.  

The meetings will take place on Thursday 28 January 2021.  To make your appointments please login at: https://parents-booking.co.uk/thegatewayacademy.  To login you will need to enter:

  • Your title and surname.
  • Your son/daughter’s first name, surname and date of birth.

The login details you enter must match those we have on record for you.

Booking your appointments online will be available with effect from today until 10.00 pm on Wednesday 27 January 2021.  After you have made your appointments you can choose to print or e-mail a confirmation to yourself.

On the day of your appointments, you need to log into the website : https://parents-booking.co.uk/thegatewayacademy 10 minutes before your appointments are due to begin and you will be able to join the video meeting room, where you can wait for your appointments.  Please note that appointments will only last the allocated 10 minutes and will end promptly after this time.  Once you log in, please stay logged in for the duration of your appointments.  The video link will work throughout the entire evening on almost all devises, which are listed below.
