Tucasi/Scopay Online Parents Evening Booking System
We use an online parents' evening booking system. The new system is the same one which we use for online payments and is called Tucasi/scopay.
We will write to let you know each time the Parents' Evening section is open to book an appointment with your child's teacher.
If you are already set up for online payments you just need to log in and select the Parents' Evening tab on the top bar. If you have not already registered with Tucasi system you will need an 'Online Access Letter' available from the school office. The letter will give you your child's unique pupil number and instructions on how to register. You will need a unique code for each child you have at school.
To access the system please log on by using the link below
Please find the Tucasi/Scopay quick reference guide at the bottom of this page.
