Virtual Parents’ Evening: How to Guide

Due to the current restriction all of our Parents’ Evenings will be conducted online.

We will be using a system called “Parents Booking” which we have used for scheduling teacher/parent appointments for the past few years. This system has been updated to allow the video call to take place within the system.

www.parents-booking.co.uk/prestonlodge

To log in you require to know:

  • Your first name and surname
  •  Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth

Be aware, this information must match our records!! (Parent surname can sometimes cause an issue if you use more than one)

  1. Making your booking

These slides explain how you make your bookings.

(You can fast forward or pause the video if the slides move too slowly or quickly.)

The login screen has had is look updated but the information you are require to enter is the same

More information and help on making a booking can be found here Parent Booking Help page

2. Online Meeting (Video Call)

You can watch this helpful video, which will explain how you use the system to hold the online meeting.

 

 

Covid Update 16th Sept

Yesterday we completed contact tracing on the second case and all contacts have been notified and are self-isolating.

A further case has been identified today and a detailed risk assessment has been carried out by NHSL Public Health and the school.  Although the case is connected to the school, COVID19 was contracted outwith the school setting and does not represent any spread within the school itself.

We will be issuing no further communication on these cases in order to protect their right to privacy. However, should there be any spread at the school you will be notified.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.
