How to create a pupil note

Class Charts allows you to add notes about specific pupils, which can be used to highlight key information about them (e.g guidance for cover teachers).

To create a note for a pupil, click on the Classes tab along the top of the page and start the class of your choice by clicking on the Start button.

Next, choose a pupil by clicking on their pupil tile.

The pupil sidebar will appear. Click on the Notes tab to view a list of notes that have been written about the selected pupil.

Enter the information into the text box provided and click on the Post note button to add it as a new pupil note.

The new note will then appear below the text box with any previously created pupil notes.
