Parents' Evening Bookings - In Use

For Parents' Evening bookings, we use an internet-based system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO).  Using this system, you can select appointments at times that suit you best, from any internet-connected computer. 

The system is currently open to book appointments for the following Parents' Meetings:

Year 6

  • Thursday 7 February, 6.00 – 8.00 pm in the Dining Room.

  • Tuesday 12 February, 6.00 – 8.00 pm in the Dining Room.

  • Thursday 14 February, 5.00 – 7.00 pm in The Spinney.

You will be able to book 5 minute appointments with your son’s teachers for English, Maths, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Geography, Classics and Self and Society. 

Information on using PTO
Click here to access the system.  Then select Obtain PIN/Password (under Need help? on the right) and enter your email address. Your PIN will be emailed to you. Once logged in, instructions for the booking process are provided onscreen.
Please note the following points:
  • Data will normally re-uploaded to the system for each series of Parents’ Evenings, and you will be issued with a new pin for next time.  

  • We recommend that you make your bookings as soon as possible in order to secure the best choice of times. You will also be able to use the system to re-arrange your appointment times if necessary, although this will of course depend on availability of slots.

  • When you log on, the system displays only your own son(s).  Logins have been set up for both parents, so either parent can book appointments.  If both parents book slots, then this will be treated as two separate bookings.  

  • You will only see time slots that are available at the time you are using the system.

  • When you have made all the appointments you require, you can download or receive via email a report of your bookings.

  • You can login and change bookings at any time up until 1.00 pm on the day before the Parents’ Evening.  If any changes are necessary after this time, you will need to contact the School Office.

  • Other parents may be making bookings at the same time as you are using the system.  It is possible, although unlikely, that a time slot is displayed to you as available, but is then booked by another parent shortly afterwards.  If you then attempt to book this time slot, it will no longer be available, and a message will be displayed to indicate this.

  • If you have sons in other year groups, you may see their details on the system, but with no appointment times available. You will be notified by email when bookings are open for other year groups.

If you have any problems with PTO, please email office@beaconschool.co.uk or telephone the School Office.
