School Communications

We use a variety of digital communication systems to ensure parents / carers are kept up to date with a range of different areas.  Below you will find all of the communication systems we use at Idris Davies School 3-18 together with parental user guides and support videos to help navigate and understand the way in which they work.

If you require further support with any of these systems please use our IT Online Help desk at the bottom of this page.

ClassCharts (Attendance & Wellbeing)

Parents can use this app to keep track of their child’s weekly timetable, view attendance records, and track scheduled wellbeing detentions.  If parents have more than one child, they can access ClassCharts information about their children from a single, centralised parent account.

Parents can login to Classcharts using the unique pupil code provided by the school.  A ClassCharts app can also be downloaded to a parental device using their providers app store. 

Please click on the ClassCharts logo to visit the website.

Please view the ClassCharts user guide below.
