Parents Evening Monday 31st January and Tuesday 1st February 2022 School Cloud - Online Appointment Booking

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

We would like to invite you to attend our virtual Parents Evening between 3:40pm and 6pm on Monday 31st January and Tuesday 1st February 2022.

 

The school have previously introduced an intuitive and easy to use online appointment booking system called School Cloud. This is a part of the parent pay system that we already operate in school and has been highly recommended by local schools.

 

This system allows you to choose your own appointment times with your child’s class teacher and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. All bookings will be allocated a ten minute slot and the session will close automatically at the end of this time period.  

 

The booking portal for appointments will be open from Monday 24th January at 9am.

Please visit https://barcroftprimary.schoolcloud.co.uk/ to book your appointments.

 

We hope that this will be a way forward whilst we are limiting the amount of visitors in school but ask you to bear with us and let us know if you experience difficulties so we can work together to find a solution. We have included a link below to the guide booklet, which will help you if you have any immediate queries.

Step 2: Select Parents' Evening

Click on the date you wish to book.

Unable to make all of the dates listed? Click I'm unable to attend.

Step 3: Select Booking Mode

Choose Automatic if you'd like the system to suggest the shortest possible appointment schedule based on the times you're available to attend. To pick the times to book with each teacher, choose Manual. Then press Next.

We recommend choosing the automatic booking mode when browsing on a mobile device.

If you chose the automatic booking mode, you'll see provisional appointments which are held for 2 minutes. To keep them, choose Accept at the bottom left.

If it wasn’t possible to book every selected teacher during the times you are able to attend, you can either adjust the teachers you wish to meet with and try again, or switch to manual booking mode.

Step 7: Book Appointments

Click any of the green cells to make an appointment. Blue cells signify where you already have an appointment. Grey cells are unavailable.

To change an appointment, delete the original by hovering over the blue box and clicking Delete. Then choose an alternate time.

Once you’re finished booking all appointments, at the top of the page in the alert box, press click here to finish the booking process.
