    Our first PE using PES went without a hitch, making sure SIMs is correct is the main thing otherwise Parents cant register.

    Downside...some staff cant tell the time so overrun making their appointment sheets useless. What can you do about this?

    Thanks Graham!

    Glad to hear it went well. Did you turn on the appointment gap to stop parents from booking consecutive appointments? We've found in other schools that when parents have 5 mins spare between appointments then they're at the next teacher before their appointment starts which puts a little pressure on the current parent to finish up on time.

    Wow...thread regurgitation!! Have more schools taken this on and used it? I have just forwarded it to one of our VP's who has asked me to investigate further, so it would be great to hear from other schools and their experiences

    We have used it all year since our trial run at year 12 Parents' evening last year.

    Been great, support is excellent, PM me of you want to chat about the nitty gritty.
