For primary schools to large secondary schools, there are only 3 steps
Parents see the evenings relevant for their children. You can choose when each evening opens for bookings.
Parents then pick who they'd like to see from a list of their children's teachers. All this data is synced from your MIS.
An efficient schedule is automatically generated. They receive an email confirmation of their appointments.
Pinpoint which students are without appointments for a particular event or see who hasn't had any appointments for this academic year. Also see the percentage of students that have appointments for each event.
See how many slots are left for each member of staff, giving you key information to decide if more appointments should be made available. Also easily find out what teachers are high in demand.
Using the interactive graph you can easily see what times are the most often booked by parents at your event. Conversely you can see what times are quiet at the event and could be removed from future events.
Cutting edge features for administrators and school leaders
We sync with SIMS, iSAMS, RM Integris, Facility, WCBS 3Sys, ScholarPack, Bromcom, Progresso, PupilAsset, Arbor and SEEMiS (via Glow).
Parents Evening System produces clear appointment sheets to print individually for handing to parents in person, or in bulk to distribute to teachers.
A gap between appointments can be added to ensure parents arrive at their next one on time. Most schools report their evenings runs smoother as a result.
Parents can add themselves to a waiting list if a teacher is fully booked. Administrators can respond to parents' requests to make alternate arrangements.
Parents can include a short message to each teacher when booking appointments. Teachers can then prepare in advance to get the most out of the short meeting.
Quickly choose if parents can book both teachers who share a class or instead pick one teacher who will represent the class at the parents' evening.
Teachers see their appointments for upcoming evenings and can easily print them out, book on behalf of students, mark the attendance of parents or manage their break times.
Teachers can book on behalf of parents or even book appointments for the students they want to see before general booking is open to parents.
View the notes parents leave when booking appointments to focus the discuss and record teacher notes beside them to use at the interview or for follow-up tasks.
Administrators can decide if teachers are able to add appointments or delete appointments, manage their availability and breaks, or mark the attendance of parents.
Enable parents to book online for after-school activities and school plays
Parents can also book tickets for extra-curricular activities, information nights and more with the Event Booking module.
See instantly who's signed up for each event, saving you from handling RSVP slips from parents and allocating tickets.
Parents no longer worry about the reply slip getting lost at the bottom of schoolbags. They can easily book online at any convenient time.
Teachers and Parents can now be logged into the Parents Evening System automatically using Single Sign-On options.
Teachers and Parents can sign in using their Firefly account meaning it's really easy for users to access the Parents Evening System.
Alternatively, Teachers can login using their Active Directory credentials by setting up ADFS SAML or LDAP.

Highly configurable to handle every type of parents' evening
Make the right impression with your parents with a system branded with your school colors and logo. Localisation options allow you to change the terminology if your events are called interviews instead.
For parents that prefer to phone the school or for those without the internet, appointments can easily be added on their behalf by a teacher or administrator.
Have teachers starting earlier or finishing later at a parents evening. The system will even message parents in bulk when a teacher is absent on the day, for example due to illness.
Separated parents can each book their own set of appointments. Twins are also taken care of with the system making sure the parent has a clash free schedule.
