Class Charts for Parents

Class Charts for Parents/ Carers:

Class Charts is an online system which teachers use to track achievement and behaviour throughout the school day. We believe in working closely with parents/ carers and one of the key benefits of using Class Charts is that we are able to securely share your child(s) achievement and behaviour report with you and so keep you up to date in real-time.

Class Charts is used to share information with parents/ carers about:

  • Achievement Points
  • Behaviour Points
  • Attendance
  • Homework

What is Class Charts for Parents?

Depending on how your school has set our system up, you will be able to use Class Charts to keep track of your pupil’s achievements, access behaviour reports, view assigned homework tasks and track scheduled detentions.

If you have more than one child at the school, or multiple schools, you can use the same parent account to view achievement data for all your children.

Class Charts for parents can be accessed via our website, or by our iOS and Android apps.
You can access the parent website and links to the parent apps at: https://www.classcharts.com/parent/login

Activity Feed

Below these graphs you will find a list of behaviour activity relating to your child. These display the behaviour that was awarded, when it was awarded, who awarded the behaviour, the lesson the behaviour was awarded in, and how many points the award is worth. The level of detail within each behaviour award depends on the settings that your school has enabled.

Attendance


If it has been enabled by your school, you will be able to view your child’s attendance information. Depending on your school’s setup, this is either shown on a day by day basis for each of your child’s lessons or as AM and PM attendance for the day.

The attendance colour coded system is broken down as follows:

Homework

Homework tasks are displayed within 3 different categories: to do, pending, and submitted.
