Virtual Parents Evening - Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th April 2021
Hallam Primary School has introduced ‘School Cloud’, a new intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system to allow parents and carers to meet one-to-one with teachers in the form of an online, video meeting. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. You shall then be able to login remotely on the evening and join meetings with teachers. We are confident this will be an improvement to the previous system, especially during the context of COVID-19, and welcome any feedback.
Appointments can be made from Thursday 1st April from 07:00am and the booking system will close on Tuesday 27th April at 19:00pm.
Please note that although you will book 8-minute appointments, these will actually end after 6 minutes to allow time for teachers to take notes prior to their next appointment.
Please visit https://hallam.schoolcloud.co.uk to book your appointments. A short guide on how to add appointments is found below. If you are unable to log-in please contact the school office for support either by telephone or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Login with the following information as prompted at the parent login screen:
• Your Name
• Parents Name
• Pupil’s First Name
• Pupil’s Surname
• Pupil’s Date of Birth
The information you enter must match the information we have on record and so it may be
necessary for some families to update their details.
Known video call issue with iOS 14.2
Parents or teachers joining a video call using an iPhone/iPad running iOS 14.2 are likely to experience stuttering audio which may stabilize itself after some time.
This issue is not specific to SchoolCloud Parents Evening and affects joining any video through the Safari browser on iOS 14.2. This is caused by a bug in iOS 14.2 which is logged on Apple’s bug tracker.
What should I do?
If you have an upcoming event which takes place by video call, we recommend you contact parents/teachers to advise them not to use Apple devices running iOS 14.2.
