  3. Using the Add Maths/ Tables Class OR Add English / Spell Class button (at the bottom of the page), add the class name and year group.

  4. Your School Success Advisor will then give this class full access so any learners in - or later added to - these classes will have full access.

  2. Select Manage then Students

  3. Click on the blue Create student account(s) button.

  6. Then, create a spreadsheet with three columns: first name, surname and date of birth (in the below format)

  7. Copy and paste this into the box. Click Check, and the usernames and passwords will be created automatically. Then click on Submit, and finally Confirm.

  8. A spreadsheet with the login details will be downloaded automatically. Make sure you save this somewhere secure for future reference as passwords will not be viewable on the Teacher Dashboard once the students have been created.
