Parent Teacher Meeting

Fifth Year PT Meeting - Thursday 3rd February 2022

Due to continuing Covid restrictions we are unable to carry out the Parent-Teacher meetings in the traditional manner. We understand the importance for staff and parents of getting time to communicate and discuss the progress of their daughter in school. Virtual parent teacher meetings are new for experience for all therefore we are grateful for your support and patience as we endeavour to make it as smooth a process as possible for all involved.

To schedule the appointments for parents to meet with teachers, the school will be using PTMorganiser software.

The portal will open to Parents/Guardians on Thursday 27th January at 4 pm and close on Monday 31st January at 8 pm. This is the only window of opportunity to book a meeting with a teacher so it is imperative that you log on and book early in case you encounter technical difficulties.

How long is each meeting?

Each meeting will be a maximum of 5 minutes long.

While it is likely that you will have plenty of breaks, some teachers will have none due to the large volume of parents to see. For this reason it is very important that you are on time and the meeting finishes on time.

Please allow enough time to leave one meeting and join the next.

If you do not attend at your allotted time you forfeit your time.

If you have any difficulties during the meeting please phone 0504 -22147 or email the office on info@uct.ie
