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 pupils achievements, access behaviour reports 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

Parent Code

You should have received a Parent code from your school, which will look similar to the example code shown on the right.

 

This code is used to set up your parent account, which is covered below.

Creating a Class Charts Parent account

To create a parent account, select the I don’t have an account yet option. This will bring up additional form options.

 

Fill in the form and enter your parent code in the Access code field. Please note: Your Access Code is not the same as your password.

 

The access code is only needed for the initial sign up.
A new field will appear once you click on the next field, asking you to provide the pupil’s date of birth.

 

Click on the Pupil’s date of birth field and use the calendar date selector to enter correct date.
Once you’ve finished entering your details, enter the password of your choice and click on the Log In button to be taken to your account.

Achievements and Behaviour

Behaviour breakdown

 

On the behaviour screen, you will be presented with graphs which represent an overview of your child’s achievement and behaviour data within a  customisable timeframe.

 

To change the date range of displayed behaviour data, simply click on the calendar icon to select from the available presets or create your own  custom date range.

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  he 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.

Detentions

If your school has decided to enable the detentions view for parents, you will see a Detentions option in the top menu. Clicking on this option will display a list  of detentions which have been set for your child. Detentions fall under 4 categories: Attended, Not attended, Pending and Upscaled.

 

Attended: Your child has sat this
detention.

 

Not attended: Your child did not
sit this detention.

 

Pending: This detention has not
been sat yet.

 

Upscaled: Your child’s detention
has been escalated into another
type of detention.
To view more information about a specific detention, click on the Details button.

 

 

This will bring up a popup that describes the detention, including the reason for the detention, the awarding teacher and scheduling information.

Adding / switching children

To add another child to your Class Charts account, click on the add child option in the website menu or the add child icon within the app.

 

You will then be  asked for an access code.
Next, enter your parent access code for the child you wish to add.
This code will have been given to you by the school and is unique for that pupil.
Once the parental code has been accepted, you will see the child you have just added as a selectable option in the menu. Click on the pupil to display that child’s behaviour data.
