Module: Parents Evenings/Conferences

Time-based slots for booking of parents evenings, meetings and other timed events. Populates personal diaries of parents and relevant staff members

Our Parents Evening module allows staff to easily set up and plan parents evenings, giving parents the ability to book time slots with simplicity and ease.

Our clever system…

Only reveals time-slots available to a particular parent, for example slots for the teacher of their child or children, reducing confusion and mistakes.

Automatically populates the parent’s diary with the booked time-slot, as well as the corresponding staff member.

Allows staff to easily set up the parents evening sessions, blocking times for breaks and staff changeovers where appropriate.

Minimises errors by not allowing parents to book slots already taken, nor slots they have already booked for their other children.

What people say...

“I have found SchoolsBuddy almost life changing for managing my child’s activities, I love how all the information is in one place and it has a calendar so I can see what I have booked for the coming week. It’s a fantastic tool for parents.”

Making it easy for parents

Easy to See

Parents will view appointments available in an easy to understand visual layout, with clear time slots visible for each of their children.

Ease of Planning

Parents view makes it easy for parents to plan for multiple slots where they have siblings at the same school. Parents can choose adjacent slots to minimise waiting.

Pick Time-slots

Parents can only see appointments available for them to book, slots already booked by other parents, or slots they have booked for another of their children are hidden.

Notification and Diary

Parents will receive an email confirmation of their booking(s) and their diary will be populated with the session. It is also possible for parents to print their personal schedule.
