 NB - Each booking window opens at 10am and closes on the last day at 5pm

How to make an appointment:

Once you’ve logged on to the Parent Portal, select Book Parents Evening from within the General menu, and simply click on a 5 minute time slot for each teacher you wish to see. As a teacher’s time slots are taken by other parents, they will disappear from those available. This prevents a teacher being double-booked.
The system automatically creates a 5 minute break before and after each of your appointments to allow time for you to move to another room for your next appointment.  If you want to change a booking, click the Remove button before trying to re-book as the system will not allow you to make two bookings with the same teacher for the same subject.

In some cases, your son’s teachers may have requested an appointment and these will appear on your schedule. If the time is convenient then click in the box next to “Confirm this booking?”. If it is not convenient, but you would like to make an appointment at a different time, simply make your own appointment as above. This can be in the next 5 minute slot, if it is available. Please note: at present you cannot remove a requested booking – only the teacher can do this – but this is something we hope to introduce in the near future.

The Download button at the top right of the window allows you to:

  • Print your schedule for the evening (Bookings)
  • Download an iCal file to add to your electronic calendar (Calendar)
  • View this help-sheet (Guidance)

If you have more than one child in a particular year group, you will need to make bookings separately with each set of teachers, but you can make consecutive 5 minute bookings if they are available.
