URGENT: YOU NEED TO COMPLETE STEP 2 PRIOR TO Tuesday 2nd February 2021 (otherwise you will not get access to the PTM on the 04/02/21)

As face to face Parent Teacher meetings are not an option this year, we are going to hold the TY/5th/LCA 1 Parent/Teacher meeting online through Microsoft Teams using your son/daughter’s Office 365 account.  We have had overwhelming positive feedback from parents of our 3rd,2nd & 6th years,  whose online PTM took place last term.
