Encourage all the parents in your school to sign up to Classlist with a letter from the Head. Below is a sample letter that your Head can send out.
Our school is now on Classlist
Today we are launching an app for parents called Classlist and we would like to invite the whole school to sign up.
Classlist is a parent app that brings you into the heart of our school community. It helps you to connect and help each other. It is a safe and inclusive system that we believe will help us build a stronger school community at [school].
With Classlist, you'll be able to contact the parents in your child’s class, and see who’s who so you can put a face to a name. Classlist will keep you informed about what school and PTA events are coming up, and there’s lots more you can do: post questions of the other parents in your child’s class, form special interest groups, as well as RSVP and buy tickets. You can see who lives nearby so you can arrange car-shares and you can even find a home for outgrown school uniform.
Classlist is UK-based and fully GDPR-compliant and is already being used successfully by parents in thousands of other schools in the UK. You can share as much or as little contact information with other parents as you like, and can even keep your own phone number and email address private whilst still receiving messages via the app or by email.
Everyone using Classlist has to comply with the Classlist Community Guidelines which include being respectful of fellow parents and not using the app to complain about the school or individuals connected with the school.
You will receive an invitation to join Classlist in the next couple of days. Please let us know if you do not want us to invite you to join.
Please sign up as soon as possible!
Classlist is completely free and it’s easy to get started even before you get your invitation:
- Download the Classlist app on iOS or Android
- Select (“school name”)
- Sign up. You can choose what data to share with your fellow parents.
We are launching the Classlist app today so please sign up as soon as possible and ideally no later than [Friday 28th July].
