The S2 parent /carers’ evening will take place on Wednesday 7 February from 4.30pm-7pm. We operate an online booking system for all our parents/carers’ evenings. To make bookings go to:  http://www.parents-booking.co.uk/tynecastle

The system is live NOW and will be open to take your bookings until Wednesday 7 February at 12 noon. You can book appointments as soon as you receive this letter. Once you have logged in, we suggest you use the ‘Automated Booking’ wizard to make your appointments. You will be asked to enter your availability and choose which teachers you want to see before being shown the most efficient order for visiting those teachers on the night.

PLEASE NOTE: You need to type this address into your website browser’s ‘address bar’. Do not try to ‘Google’ this website address or use a search engine as that will not work. This is a common mistake on phones and tablets especially.

Login to see which appointments are available and select one that is convenient for you. You will need: Your child’s legal first name and legal surname, and your child’s date of birth.

Troubleshooting Tips – please read before booking! 

  • To login you need to enter the details we have on record for you and your child. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record
  • The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem
  • If you are unable to book at home, please call the office between 9.30am and 3.00pm Monday to Thursday or 9.30am to 12.30pm on a Friday and a member of staff will help you.
