S4-S6 Parent/Carer Consultations

Dear Parents/Carers

The S4-6 parent /carers’ evening will take place on Tuesday 12 November for students with surnames beginning A-L, and Wednesday 20 November for students with surnames beginning M-Z.

To make bookings go to http://www.parents-booking.co.uk/tynecastle

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.

You will need:
• Your child’s ‘known as’ forename and legal surname
• Your child’s date of birth

The system will be open from 7pm on 29 October and will be open to take your bookings until 6.55 pm on 12 November for A-L and on 20 November for M-Z.

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. Alternatively login to see which appointments are available for the members of staff with whom you would like to meet, and select appointment times that are convenient for you.

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 be happy to help you.

Additionally, there will be the opportunity to hear from school staff about two very important aspects of planning for young people:

• Prelim and Exam Study Supports
• Career Trends and Options

There will be drop-in sessions throughout the evening, each lasting no longer than half an hour.

We look forward to seeing you.

Yours sincerely

Angela Bell
Depute Head Teacher S4-
