Our school will no longer be using text messages as a preferred method of contact. The most direct way to receive messages from the school will be through the MyEd app.
We’re fully committed to using MyEd; it reduces the number of emails you receive and the amount of printing while still keeping you in touch with what’s going on at school, additional bonus – it saves the school money. The app gives you direct access to your child’s attendance, their timetable, absence records, achievements, behaviour reports and much more.
For further information please visit: http://www.myedschoolapp.com/
The MyEd App is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices and can be found on either the Apple App Store or on Google Play by searching for MyEd.
Once you have installed and opened MyEd, search for your child’s name and follow the simple instructions to identify yourself. We would be delighted if you would download the app, and if you do have any concerns or queries, please don’t hesitate to contact the school.
If you do not have access to email, you can opt to continue to receive paper copies from the Academy. Please still supply us with your mobile numbers, as we are able to send text messages in certain circumstances.
Please be assured that My Ed is registered with the Data Protection Register and guarantees that all information you provide will be kept private and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
Class Charts is an online system which teachers use to track achievement and behaviour throughout the school day. We believe in working closely with parents and one of the key benefits of using Class Charts is that we are able to securely share your child(s) achievement and behaviour report with you and so keep you up to date in real-time.
Class Charts is used to share information with parents about:
• Achievement Points
• Behaviour Points
You will be able to use Class Charts to keep track of your child’s achievements, access behaviour reports and track scheduled detentions.
If you have more than one child at the school you can use the same parent account to view achievement data for all your children.
Class Charts for parents can be accessed via the website, or iOS and Android apps.
You can access the parent website and links to the parent apps here: PARENT LOGIN
You should have received a Parent Code, which will look similar to the example code shown below.
This code is used to set up your parent account.
Creating An Account via the App
If you click the ‘Sign Up’ tab within the app you will be presented with an account creation form. Simply fill in the form and enter your Parent Code in the Access Code field. Clicking ‘Sign Up’ will log you into the account.

Below these graphs you will find a list of behaviour activity relating to your child. These display the behaviour that was awarded, when it was awarded, who awarded the behaviour, the lesson the behaviour was awarded in, and how many points the award is worth.
