On Thursday, an MYP information session was held from 14.30 to 16.00 to present the Middle Years Programme and explain MYP assessment including eAssessments for M5 students. Parents also had the opportunity to meet with tutors and teachers and an MYP information booklet was handed out with details on the MYP curriculum, timetable, teachers’ contact details, along with other information. If you were unable to join this MYP session, you can still come and pick-up the information booklet from Florence Larpent, our MYP Coordinator or make an appointment to meet with her, tutors and teachers.
Managebac Parent Introduction Session
Managebac is our Virtual Learning Environment, with areas where teachers can post work and resources, students can submit work, and parents can track grades.
All parents in secondary have access to Managebac. New parents and M1 have been added, and should have received a welcome email to set a password. If you have not received this/cannot access Managebac please email firstname.lastname@example.org
On Wednesday 30 August, at 14.30, we will be offering an introductory training to Managebac for parents. If you would like to attend please reserve a place by emailing me on the address above.
