Remote Parents Evening System

Ormstion Ilkeston Enterprise Academy use an intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system, SchoolCloud, for parents’ evenings. Invitation emails are sent prior to the parents’ evening with full information on how to book and attend appointments.

This system allows parents and carers to choose their own appointment times, and sends a confirmation email once appointments have been booked. Parents/carers are able to check and amend appointments at any time and there is also the facility to send messages to teachers prior to the evening.

Video Guide for Parents

Note: 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.
