Why choose Parents Booking?

We’re confident we can offer you a better system, and better service, than any of our competitors.

The original and best

Because we’ve been around since 2009, we’ve had plenty of time to craft and refine Parents Booking. You know you’re getting a polished, experienced tool, tried, tested and developed to meet the needs of thousands of schools across the UK.

Always listening, always developing

We love working closely with schools and parents to make our software ever-easier to use, and to ensure it can do everything you need it to, simply and intuitively.

A prime example of this is having spent the first half of 2020 building Video Calls functionality, so that schools can run ‘socially-distanced’ meetings, rather than in-person meetings, for academic year 2020/21 onwards.

The flexibility you need

Unlike other systems, we make it easy to change your curriculum data after it has been uploaded. For example, you might need to move a class from one teacher to another, or share classes in any way you like. You can move classes and students around easily, ensuring parents’ evenings are set up exactly as you need.

Loved by parents

One of the features parents love most is the one-click booking wizard – a way to automatically create a schedule of available appointments, with no clashes, for each teacher and each child. Instead of booking a dozen individual appointments, they just click once, print their schedule, and turn up on the night.

“So much easier and quicker! Well done!”

“Excellent option offering to make appointments automatically!”

“I’ve just used the Automated Booking Wizard and it worked really well – so pleased – what an easy system to use.”

Run Meetings by Video Call

New for the 2020/21 academic year, schools can add the Video Calls module to their subscription and use the power of video call technology to facilitate any or all meetings.

Top quality support

Using the system is a breeze – and we have plenty of ways to help if you ever need a hand. As well as manuals and instruction videos, our phone and email support desk is open Monday to Friday.

Event and Club Booking

We don’t just help schools with their parents’ evenings. We help schools take their Event and School Club bookings online. So whether you want to take reservations or sell tickets for a Jack and the Beanstalk student performance, or want parents to be able to sign their children up to a breakfast club, football club or a paid school trip, we have the bolt-on modules that will take those free or paid bookings.
