Welcome to the Harlaw Academy Website

S1 Parents’ Evening 16 June

To login to the S1 Parents’ Evening please click on the link https://www.parents-booking.co.uk/harlawacademy and complete the login information below. Please note this needs to be exactly the same information you used to book your appointments which matches the main contact information in our information system for your child. This is important – even using a shortened version of a first name will stop the login working.

If you experience difficulties accessing the Parents’ Evening online please note:-


1 The “Join Video Meetings” button will not appear until 15 minutes before your first appointment

2 Grey box where the teacher’s video should be (after the meeting has started)
This means that your computer isn’t able to connect to the video server. This is generally either
1. You are using an internet browser that is incompatible (or might need Updated)
2. Your internet connection or firewall is blocking the video meeting (try using a device with 3G/4G to
see if there’s a difference, and if so you know it’s your internet connection/firewall), or
3. Your computer has some other sort of issue stopping it connecting (in which case we would
recommend you try a different device, e.g. smartphone, tablet, computer).

3“Cannot access your device due to a hardware error”
This means the webcam/mic are not ‘available’ for your internet browser to use. If you’ve recently had a
Teams/Zoom meeting, make sure these are closed (even try a CTRL+AT+Delete to close them, or a
computer restart). You may need to try a different computer/smartphone/tablet if you can’t find the
cause to this error.
“The user did not give permission to access your media”
This often means the internet browser is blocking access to the webcam. Look at your internet
browser’s web address bar and check if the video symbol is ‘blocked’. If it is, unblock and refresh the
web page.

If you are having difficulty groupcall us or email harlawacademy@aberdeencity.gov.uk
