Sometimes your child asks you to arrange for them to play with a friend after school, but you don't know the full name of the friend's parent, or have any contact details for them. Luckily Classlist allows you to search by a child's name to find the parent! Open the Classlists page, and type the child's name in the search-box. The search will bring up all the people (parents and children) with that name. In the example below we searched for 'Rob' which brought up a Robin and a Robert. If there are two children with the same name and you need to clarify further you can click on the parent's name and Classlist will show you which class the child belongs to.
Once you've identified the correct parent you can private message him/her by clicking on the pink speech bubble icon.
