During academic session 2020-21 and in response to Covid 19 restrictions Bathgate Academy has moved to online parents evenings.

We are using the same booking system as in previous years, however your appointments with teachers will now be online.

To access the parent booking site please click the link opposite. This will go live once you have received a Groupcall message indicating appointments can be made for that particular year group. See booking windows information below.  

Teachers will be available, as per their working time agreement, to take 5 minute appointments over a 3 hour window on each designated evening. To increase flexibility of this online consolation provision, teachers have chosen their 36 '5 min' time slots within a 5 hour window of time starting at 3.45pm and ending at 8.45pm.

  • Time will be limited on the call and you may find it useful to jot down any questions you would like to ask
  • Please be respectful at all times during the consultation as you would if you were meeting face to face
  • The meeting may not be recorded by the school or the parent, this is in breach of the hosting company policy
