What is class charts?
Class charts is behaviour management software used by our teachers to record and track student achievement and behaviour in real-time. This software gives you up to the minute information on your child’s behaviour, both positive and negative instantly making it easy to track your child’s progress. Class charts is used by our teachers to communicate with you vital information regarding your child such as any positive value points awarded, in the case of any negative points given with reason, important announcements, praise messages and any detention which your child may have.
As parents, you can keep up to date with your child’s progress through the class charts website or by downloading the Class Charts app for parents on iOS and Android devices. If you have more than one child, you can access Class Charts information about your children from a single, centralised parent account.
