Platform Updates & Safer Internet Day 2018

5 Feb 2018

Welcome to the latest update from eSchools HQ… this week we are looking at platform updates and Safer Internet Day 2018.


As a result of your feedback, we’ve made some improvements to the register success notification. By making it larger and more prominent it is even clearer to see when the register has been successfully saved.

The screenshot below illustrates the new notification in action alongside our Simple Register feature. With the Simple Register a teacher need only mark whether a child is present or absent, rather than having to select from a list of codes.

Please contact our support team if you would like to enable this feature on your eSchools platform.

Platform Personalisation

We’ve had some great feedback regarding the platform personalisation feature we released on Monday. If you have yet to send us your logo please do so by emailing

A handy tip – if your logo is appearing larger than expected on the login page, this is likely due to the browser’s cache. Pressing ctrl + shift + r on your keyboard will refresh the page so that your logo displays correctly.

Safer Internet Day 2018

In recognition of Safer Internet Day 2018, which takes place on Tuesday 6th February, we’ve teamed up with Bett Award finalist, Gooseberry Planet, to offer some free internet safety resources!

Did you know? 52% of 8-11 year olds have their own tablet and 23% have their own social media account. 94% of this age group spend a staggering 13 1/2 hrs a week online!
