What kinds of Parents Meetings can I have?
Tes Parents' Meetings allows you to organise meetings that promote engagement between your parents and teachers, helping them to review and discuss student progress - this article gives you an overview of the various options available to you.
There are three kinds of sessions that can be used in your meetings, these can be combined for maximum flexibility, allowing you to tailor your meetings for particular groups of teachers, students, or specific school circumstances.
In-Person Sessions, where parents come into the school and meet with the teachers you make available - everyone involved will be in the same physical space. Parents log into the system to make their bookings.
Video Call Sessions, where parents can have a video call with the teachers you make available - everyone involved can attend from anywhere in the world, as long as they have a suitable device that is connected to the internet. Parents log into the system to make their bookings and to attend the video call.
Hybrid Sessions, where your parents get the choice to make bookings with the teachers you make available either in-person or via a video call (but not both) - in this case teachers would usually be at the school, as they would need to be available for both in-person and video appointments. Parents log into the system to make their bookings and those who chose to book video calls then log on to attend them.
When setting up a meeting you can have one or more dates in it and one or more sessions. These sessions (blocks of time) can be on the same day (but not at the same, or overlapping times) or on different days. When you are adding more than one session on the same date, we recommend that you have any involving video calls sessions first, as these cannot overrun and affect later sessions.
