If you are trying to begin the 'Move Up' procedure on Classlist, please follow this link:
Classlist's School Structure was highlighted in the 'Getting Started - The Set Up Wizard, this page will go into more detail and explain how different styles of school structure can be created, perfectly matched for your school.
The 'School Structure' System is how your school itself is organised. Each Year represents a big group potentially containing a cluster of smaller groups called Classes (though you can swap your classes and years if your school does things a little differently).
Parents can post and interact with other parents within the individual class their child is in, or message the year group. Each of these Years falls into an even bigger 'Whole School' group, which parents can also communicate through.
We understand how important it is that this process be completed correctly, so we've made sure that setting it up is as quick and easy as possible. Below is an example image of how a school can be set up, with Years and Classes populated by pupils.
Moving a Pupil(s)
Moving a pupil is simple. Just select the pupil you wish to move then drag them into the correct class. Alternatively you can use the search box above the pupils section to move a pupil into a specific Year/Class.
You can even select multiple pupils at once!
Different School Structures
The system is flexible, however; if you only have one class within a year, you can simply change the name of the 'Year' to represent a class, a year with no classes linked to it will act itself as a class.
Smaller schools or schools with different structures can change things around. You don't need to use both tiers. For instance, if you only have one class in a year you can re-name the 'Years' as 'Classes' if you so wish. Or, if you have classes with two year-groups in, you could reverse these tiers to have a class in the first column, with the two years within it as the second column. To see an example below, please click here.
Adding either a new 'Class' or new 'Year' group is done using the two orange buttons underneath the main table.
Parents will see contact details for the other parents in the two tiers that they are in. This is normally their 'Class' and whole 'Year', so we suggest you set up the structure according to which sets of parents need to interact most often and share contact details with each other.
Using the School Structure tool
To rename or delete a specific category, simply click on the pencil icon. You need to move all of the pupils out of a class or year before deleting it.
To move pupils, simply drag and drop their name tag into the new class. You can choose multiple pupils at once by dragging your mouse over the pupils or by holding shift and clicking on the tag to select many. Pupils are added by their parents to Classlist upon registration.
If you have pupils to delete you can select them and then find the small 'trash' icon at the bottom.

School 1 has the following 'Classes', with two 'Years' in some classes, but a 'Year' group spread across two 'Classes' too. This makes it hard to use the two tier structure.
Their classes are:
Foundation:F2Red RobinsBluebirdsYears 1&2:1W1/2ME2PYears 3&4:3W3/4B4KYears 5&6:5L5/6S6OThe parents will be in 2 groups for each child. Their 'Year' e.g. years 5 & 6, and their class e.g. 6O. That means they can communicate easily with both groups, and can see contact details/classlists for the the people in those groups.
