Online Booking System for Parent Consultations

Dear Parent/Carer,               

We have organised a new online booking system for our Parents/Carers Consultations (Parents’ Evenings). Our next event is on Thursday 11th October 2018

3:15pm -5:15pm & 6:15pm-8:15pm for all classes.

Go to  http://www.parents-booking.co.uk/holycrossprimary

PLEASE NOTE: You need to type this address into your website browser’s ‘address bar’. Do not try to ‘Google’ this website address or use a search engine as that will not work. This is a common mistake on phones and tablets especially.

Login to see which appointments are available and select one that is convenient for you.

You will need to enter:

  • Your title (Mr/Mrs/Miss) and surname (these must match those we have on record for you)
  • Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth

The system is live from Monday 17th September and will be open to take your bookings until Monday 8th October at 11:55pm

Once you have logged in, we suggest you use the ‘Automated Booking Wizard’ to make your appointments. You will be shown your child/children and their teachers. Tick the teacher you wish to book and enter your availability. The wizard will use this information to calculate the best order for your appointments, allowing you to navigate the teachers in the quickest and most efficient manner.

Troubleshooting Tips – please read before booking! 

  • To login you need to enter the details we have on record for you and your child. If you have recently changed your title or surname, for example, and not informed us, we will be expecting you to login with the details we have on record
  • The email address you enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. If the system gives you an error when you login, it will not be the email address that is the problem
  • If you have several children to make bookings for, and decide not to use the Booking Wizard, but instead make appointments individually, use the ‘Change Child’ button on the blue bar (above the school’s name) in the very top left corner of the Parent’s Booking Page to swap between your children

If you are unable to book at home, there will be a computer available in school between

3pm-4pm from 17th September until 7th October and we will assist you in logging in.

Parent Council Vacancies

The Parent Council is made up of parents, the head teacher, a teacher and a church representative. We support the work of the school and enhance the learning opportunities available for all pupils. We normally meet about four times a year. A separate Parent Teacher Group (PTG) coordinate the fund-raising activities although some parents attend both.

At present, there are three vacancies as office bearers on the Parent Council – Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. We also want to re-establish a core committee on the Parent Council. All parents/guardians of children at the school are entitled to put themselves forward for membership of the Parent Council.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Parent Council please complete this form no later than Friday 21 September 2018. Alternatively, complete the Reply Slip already sent out in the children’s schoolbags.

If the number of interested people exceeds the number of places available, a ballot will take place at the AGM.

Parent Council Online Reply Slip

Credit Union

In April 2010 we launched a Holy Cross Credit Union which is affiliated to the local Croy Credit Union.

We are now in the eighth year of our school Credit Union and many children have become regular savers, depositing small amounts of money on a Thursday.

If you wish your child to take part in this worthwhile financial experience and encourage your child to save-up, you can complete a permission  slip and they will be given a membership card to be filled in. Forms will be given out Week beginning the 27th of August 2018. An information letter and copy of the form can be accessed on our credit union page.

Do not send money with the slip, they will receive a savings book when we have their details.

 

Welcome Back!
