For any parent’s evenings there will be a link sent to you which you should use to set up appointments. This is a system we have used over the past few years and has worked incredibly well.

We know that there are a range of ways we are asking you to engage with school using technology. We are committed to streamlining this where possible and will let you know if there are any changes that are made. However, the systems we are using really enhance the experience for all students and parents at Therfield.
