Booking Primary Parent Teacher Meetings Online - Bangkok Prep

Booking Primary Parent Teacher Meetings Online

The final round of Bangkok Prep Primary Parent Teacher Meetings of this school year will take place on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March from 14:40 to 17:00. Once again we will be using an online booking system for these meetings.

An online booking system enables you to have better control over which teachers you see and when.

Here are some of the key features for parents:

  • Certainty as to the time and date of your appointment(s).
  • Make appointments for all of your children in one booking.
  • Make appointments using a Mac, PC, mobile or tablet device.
  • Instant confirmation for your selected meeting time(s).
  • Confirmation email with appointment times, a photograph of the teacher and the room number for each meeting.

If you have any problems using the online booking system, there will be a workshop in my classroom (Room 336) on Tuesday 19th March between 14:40 and 15:00. A member of staff will be there to assist you with your booking.

Hints and tips for a successful booking:

Make sure you are happy with your appointment times before submitting the form. Changing appointment times is time consuming for the class teacher and could stop another parent from booking their preferred time.

Allow a gap between appointments. Give yourself time to get from one room to another. A gap of at least 10 minutes between appointment times is recommended.

Do not make two appointments at the same time. It sounds obvious, but the system is not yet able to stop you making this mistake.

Do not make multiple bookings. To ensure all parents are able to see their child’s teachers you are only allowed one appointment with each of your child’s teachers. Multiple bookings will be cancelled meaning you may miss out on your preferred time.

Your appointment is not confirmed until you click ‘Submit’. If you receive the confirmation page and confirmation email then your appointment(s) has been confirmed. If you receive an error message then your meeting time has not been confirmed and you should make another.

Please note the booking system will close at 17:00 on Sunday 24th March.

Admissions Procedure

When choosing Bangkok Prep for your child, you’re welcomed into the school family, ensuring a warm and supportive environment. The admissions process begins with completing a brief enquiry form, followed by an invitation for an introductory visit and tour. Conveniently located on Sukhumvit 77, Bangkok Prep offers both Primary and Secondary campuses. Upon deciding on Bangkok Prep, applicants submit their application form and required documents. Assessment sessions are then scheduled based on the applicant’s year level, ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. The assessment includes various activities and tests tailored to different age groups. After assessment, the admissions team evaluates the application and notifies the family of the decision within 1-2 weeks. Successful applicants receive a formal offer letter and an invoice for initial fees, including placement, security, and registration fees, which must be paid within the specified timeframe to secure the child’s place.

Early Years

At Bangkok Prep, the Early Years curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England, emphasizing thematic topics and child-led learning for a stimulating and enjoyable school experience. It nurtures learning through play and focuses on developing concepts, skills, and positive attitudes across various areas including personal, social, emotional, communication, language, physical, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world, and expressive arts and design. The curriculum prioritizes individualized learning, ensuring continuous progress while maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. Specialist sessions in Thai language and culture, music, library, physical education, and swimming further enhance learning opportunities. Supervised by native English teachers and Thai-speaking teaching assistants, children immerse in language acquisition through the immersion method, preparing them for the international community. The Early Years program prioritizes outdoor learning environments, valuing them as essential for children’s wellbeing and development. It serves as ideal preparation for the transition into primary school and provides resources for parents on the Foundation Years website.

Secondary School

Bangkok Prep prides itself on being a distinct international secondary school in Bangkok, prioritizing student needs and providing a stimulating learning environment. Central to this is the pastoral system, where each student is assigned to a tutor group led by a Form Tutor, ensuring personalized care and support. The curriculum evolves to meet students’ changing needs, offering a core curriculum supplemented by option subjects as students mature. Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9) focuses on a broad curriculum adapted from the English National Curriculum, fostering personal growth. In Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11), students choose option subjects alongside a core curriculum, culminating in IGCSE examinations. Key Stage 5 (Years 12-13) sees students specialize in Advanced Level courses while also engaging in a core curriculum and receiving support for university applications. Bangkok Prep fosters a warm, inclusive community and actively participates in regional competitions and events. The school encourages student involvement and leadership, ensuring a thriving learning environment. Contact information is provided for further inquiries.
