Parents’ Evening Booking System

Following the very successful introduction of an on-line booking system at a number of other schools in Perth and Kinross, we have decided to implement the system at St John’s RC Academy for all primary and secondary 2014/15 parents’ evenings.

The system allows parents to select and book their own appointments on-line giving greater flexibility in organising their evening.

Parents who do not have access to a computer, can book their appointments via the school office.
