At The Portsmouth Academy we encourage parents to support us in their child’s education by contacting us with any queries or issues.  For urgent issues please contact the school via phone on 0333 360 2200.  For general enquiries, email is probably best.  Please use info@theportsmouthacademy.org.uk if you do not know which member of staff to contact.  Please be aware that most staff will be busy teaching during the school day, and may not be able to read or respond to your email immediately.

    Parents evenings are being held online using the same system we have previously used.

    Year 9 Parents:
    As there are limited appointments available in the option subjects, please only book appointments for Food & Nutrition, Design & Technology, Art, Drama, Dance, Music, RE and PE if your child is likely to opt for these subjects for Key Stage 4. I would also ask that you use the function to ask questions (Add comment) in advance when booking the appointment in order to ensure that the teacher is adequately prepared for the meeting.

    Click here to book appointments

    To login you will need to enter:
    • Your title (Miss/Ms/Mrs/Mr) and surname
    • Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth.
    • The login details you enter must match those we have on record for you. The first name and
    surname must match those that your child is known on the school register (e.g. Katherine
    Smith/Katie Smith).
    • We may have a different title on record for you (e.g. Ms not Miss) so please try alternatives if you cannot login.

    If you have any issues booking appointments please contact l.burton@tsatrust.org.uk or 0333 360 2200.

    You will get a 4 minute slot with each teacher, with a minimum 1 minute gap between bookings. For years 7, 8 and 9 there may be a limit to the number of teachers you can see to ensure that all parents can make appointments.

    On the day of your appointments, you need to re-login at the website address above. 10 minutes before
    your appointments are due to begin, you will be able to join the video meeting room, where you can
    wait for your appointment(s).

    You can use smart phone, tablet or computer for video parents evenings.

    Video system requirements:
    Apple iPhone/iPad (must be iOS 11+): Safari
