When signing up to your school’s Classlist page, as a minimum you will need to enter your name, email address, class and name of your pupil(s) at the school.
The child's name is required in order to determine which class and year group(s) you will share contact details with when you log in. If you are new to the school and don't know which class your child is in, you can register on Classlist and assign your child to the correct class later. You will also have the option to add a phone number and address. These are not compulsory.
Sharing Contact Details
You can choose to share your phone number and/or address with either your class(es) or year group(s), or you can hide them completely. It is not possible to share these details with the whole school, but you can opt in to the parent map which will show your approximate address. Other parents will still be able to contact you via Classlist without ever needing to know your contact details. You can also add the contact details of any other family members for use in an emergency, again these are not mandatory.
It’s recommended that parents with more than one child at the same school add all of their children and their classes so that they receive specific year group and class information for each child.
This information is used to help parents contact each other on Classlist. It is kept securely on Classlist’s servers and is not shared with any third party advertisers.
