Classlist was founded by two parents whose kids have moved from school to school both in the UK and abroad. Getting to know other school parents, arranging pick-ups and play dates, and understanding the school calendar has always been a very hit and miss affair. Sometimes there would be a super-organised class rep with an excel or word document where we could add our details. Sometimes there wasn't, or the list was wrong, or we lost it. And the schools just weren't interested. And then next year, the same again... for three children each.
There must be a better way to connect with other parents, without the whole world getting your personal details.
Classlist is a simple to use, totally free and secure digital platform that helps parents connect with each other. The system has been created to allow parents to register, share and update only the details they feel comfortable with. Already successfully in use in hundreds of schools; Classlist acts as a 'virtual school gate' from which parents can make friends, arrange play-dates and even organise fundraising events.
The platform also includes a number of other useful tools such as a Parent Map, allowing parents to ease the burden of the school run by arranging lift shares, as well as a Marketplace listings feature that allows parents to buy and sell personal items or even find a potential babysitter. All of these features are completely free, situated in a secure environment that is fully Data Protection Registered.
