Please see below the dates for ORA parents’ evenings, for this academic year:

  • Year 11 Tuesday 7th December 
  • Year 12 & 13 Thursday 13th January
  • Year 10 Monday 7th February
  • Year 9 Tuesday 1st March
  • Year 7 Monday 14th March
  • Year 8 Thursday 21st April

Whilst the previous online system was previously necessary, now that many Covid restrictions have been lifted, we believe that the benefits of being able to welcome you into the Academy in person far outweigh the advantages of remote contact.

We do understand this is short notice, but wish to reassure you that all existing appointments will be honoured and the SchoolCloud system will remain your point of reference for booking and monitoring appointments. Each appointment will be for five minutes, and a bell will ring to signal the start and end times.

If you have not already done so, please book appointments with your child’s teachers using your Schoolcloud parent account: Once you have logged in you will
be able to view teacher availability.

We would like to encourage all parents to make appointments to discuss their child’s progress, however, due to the nature of this event appointments are limited. Therefore, if you have concerns regarding a particular subject area for which you are unable to acquire an appointment, we request that you please email that subject teacher directly.

We wish to keep the appointments running to time so that the evening runs as smoothly as possible and remains an enjoyable experience for all involved.

The academy will close for all students as planned at 1.50 pm. However, if you wish your child to remain in school to wait for the start of their appointments, we can accommodate them in the library. We do request that, where possible, your child attends the appointments with you. For all other students work/lessons will continue as normal in their Google classroom.

We hope that this will be a good opportunity for you to get to know us better, and we look forward to welcoming you to the academy.
