Your Classlist personal profile is where you save your contact information and pupil details. To access the page, just click the 'View Profile' button (top right on a computer, in main menu on a mobile). From this page you can also opt in and out of Parent Map, and change your password.
The class you select for your child will determine which class and year group contact details you see, and which groups you are in. You can change your child's class on your profile if needed.
You will find the following features and pages within your profile:
One of the first things we recommend you do when you sign up to Classlist is upload a profile picture of yourself, allowing your fellow school-parents to recognise you easily. Just click the 'Change Photo' button and upload a suitable photo. If you upload a photo you don't like you can change it as many times as you like, but at the moment you can't go back to the grey default icon.
You can quickly edit your contact information or change your password in this section. Contact information can only be seen by other parents whose children are in the same year/class as your child. This can come in incredibly handy when a parent can't remember where you live when dropping of their child for a birthday party!
Remember to click the 'Save' button before leaving the page if you have made any changes you wish to keep.
You can also opt into the Parent Map system from here, for more information on this useful feature, please click here. The Map operates on an opt-in basis, and only those who have themselves opted in can see the locations of others; to opt in you will need to provide a full address.
NB: If you edit your profile and find the save button is greyed out, ie it won't save, you have probably missed a required field. Double check your profile and make sure you have filled in the required blanks.
The 'Manage Pupils' page allows you to edit any pupils you have at the school. You can change class here if you need to move your pupil into another class.
For more information on managing your pupils, please click here.
This page is also useful if your child leaves or you need to add a new child to the same school.
This page allows you to add extra family members to your Classlist profile. This is handy if someone needs to get in touch when you're not around. Just enter the appropriate details and click 'Save'. You can also send the family member in question an invitation to join Classlist!

In 'Privacy Settings' you can decide what information you choose to make visible to other parents while using Classlist. Simply check or uncheck the boxes next to the information you'd like to share.
You will notice pupil details must be shared with at least the class, this is to demonstrate that you are a legitimate parent with a child at the school. If you would like more information regarding security, please click here or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
The only users able to view all your information are your School Ambassador/s and Class Admins, who will need to see this information in order to verify your account and approve your application to join.
The 'Notifications' page allows you to customise the emails you receive from Classlist. By default you will not receive emails sent to the whole school, this is to reduce the amount of 'noise' Classlist generates in your email inbox.
You can check or uncheck the boxes as you like, depending on the information you wish to be alerted about.
