Each parent/carer who signed up for a parent/teacher interview via Skype for Business should now have received a Groupcall containing the link to that meeting. As this is the first time we have tried anything like this on such a scale, there is the chance everything will not go according to plan. In that scenario, we would ask for your patience and understanding.
If you wil be using this system for an interview, please bear the following in mind:
Please log in to the meeting via the link you have been sent no earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment start time.
When asked to input your name, please input the name of your child for easy identification by the teacher.
If you are accessing the meeting using a phone or a tablet, please downlowd the ‘Skype’ app from your app store beforehand.
We are on a tight schedule, so please do not be offended if your meeting is terminated 10 minutes after your appointment start time.
Hopefully, we will have enough bandwidth in school for 15 simultaneous meetings and the interviews will proceed without a hitch. In that case, thank you for your cooperation. If not … we may have to think again.
