The Classlists page is crucial to your whole experience of using the system. It shows you a personalised list of those parents whose children are in the same year or class grouping as your children. Each parent will therefore see a different list of names, according to which class and year groups their children are placed in.
From the Classlists page you will be able to find all the parents who share the same class and year group as you, and look at their public profile to find information such as address, family members etc, if they have made these details public.
Your Classlists page is identified by an icon like a photo ID card. You can find it in the navigation sidebar on a computer, or in the main navigation menu on a mobile.
Please note that the Classlist Member Guidelines include "Respect fellow class parents, which includes not using their contact details or Classlist for marketing or professional purposes. Don’t share information from the website without the author’s permission."
Take a tour here to find out about using Classlist to search for other parents.
The default view for this page is to present all parents who have children in the same year groups as yours. To filter and view only those parents who are members of a specific class or year group, click on the dropdown filter menu at the top of the page. In the image below the user has filtered by 'Year 2b Mr Kellington's class', so only the parents with children in that class are shown.
If you're looking for a specific person by name, you can use the search bar to find them quickly: they will only appear if you share a class/yeargroup with them. Once you've entered a name, or part of a name, the page will automatically bring up the names of all contacts within your school containing your search criteria.
The search function can also be used to search for a child, bringing up the child's name linked to his/her parent. Perfect for when you can't quite remember the first name of your son/daughter's friend's Mum!
If you enter a name which occurs frequently the search will bring up all the contacts with any version of that name. So for instance if you enter 'Ben', the search will find any person called Ben or Benjamin as well as Reuben or a surname, as in Tony Benn. You can click on the name of the contact to find out which class/year they belong to if you need to narrow down your seach.
