The Parents’ Evening Booking system is a website which helps schools run their parents’ evenings online. We help schools save money and huge amounts of staff time by allowing parents to make their own bookings. This also leads to better prepared, more effective meetings.
Parents make their own bookings online via our website, on their computer, smartphone or tablet, alleviating almost all of the time dedicated to parents’ evenings by teachers and staff at the school. Schools can of course help parents who do not have internet access, and we provide schools with all of the management and analysis tools required to run perfect parents’ evenings.
Read more about us below and learn how we will help you revolutionise the way parents’ evenings are run at your school. You’ll be part of a movement that is changing forever, not just in the UK but throughout Europe, the USA and around the world.
Learn About The Benefits
Running parents’ evening booking online
Schools set up their parents’ evenings online through our website and invite parents to make their bookings online after.
In order to set up an event, the school will import its teacher, parent and student data from the school’s MIS database. They then enter the dates and event times and create their events. Teachers can be allowed to edit their availability. Everything is set up in minutes.
Once parents have made their bookings, teachers can check their schedule and read any issues or discussion topics submitted by parents. This leads to better prepared and more effective meetings.
Finally, schools have access to live parent sign-up and attendance data as well as communication tools which allow them to contact parents and either invite them, remind them to book or remind them of their appointments.
We’re integrated with Groupcall Messenger
Groupcall Messenger is a market leader in school communication tools, providing schools with the ability to send personalised text messages (SMS), emails, automated voice calls, push messages and tweets (via Twitter) to the mobile phones and landlines of parents, staff and key contacts.
We have integrated with this fantastic product to allow our shared customers to utilise the great benefits we both provide, together. Communication from the Parents’ Evening Booking System to parents will be enhanced and track-able, parents will be familiar with the Messenger communication and schools can access us directly (by SSO) from Messenger.
If you would like to add Parents’ Evening Booking System or Messenger to your school, simply get in touch with ourselves or Groupcall and we’ll help you take this forward.Learn More
