Teachers

Extend the classroom online, as teachers can create projects and homework for students, as well as creating discussions and bespoke pages for classes and groups.

Messages

Icon

The messages feature works in a similar way to emails but is an internal system within the eSchools platform. Messages can be used to communicate with anyone else at your school that has access to an eSchools account.

Files

Icon

The file feature is an easy and safe way of saving important documents without the need for discs and memory sticks. Folders and subfolders can be created to easily retrieve your files. You can also share your files with other groups of users or anyone else at your school that has access to an eSchools account.

Calendar

Icon

Add your events to the calendar and share them with groups or individuals using the eSchools platform. You can also use this facility to add events to your eSchools website. View the calendars of other platform users to make diarising for events easy.


Register

Icon

Save time by taking your register electronically on the eSchools platform. This data will populate your school’s MIS system* automatically. This generates a countdown so that late children cannot be marked as present.

Classes

Icon

The class homepage is presented to a pupil with when they log into their eSchools account and is a good way of highlighting topics you are covering throughout the term and other additional useful information.

Projects

Icon

Teachers can use the Projects function to create topic folders for different classes. With Projects you can keep all of your resources in one place, assign work and quizzes to students, share projects with other staff or schools and receive and mark returning homework. Teachers can create as many topic folders as they wish, assigning them to the whole class or individuals.


Homework

Icon

Create a homework quickly using the Homework function. Homework can be assigned to classes and attached to existing projects or you can create a completely independent homework.

Parents Evening

Icon

Using the eSchools platform, parents can view available appointment slots, select a time and print a schedule. Teachers can actively see whom they are scheduled to meet and reminders can be sent to parents who have not yet scheduled a time.

Settings

Icon

Personalize your platform by using the Settings function. Click on the Cog icon on the top right hand corner of the window. Here you can change your password and your profile photo. You can also add a colourful theme to your platform’s background.


Office 365

Icon

Schools that have subscribed to Office 365 can see their emails and One Drive items appear on their eSchools platform. Outlook Calendar events will also appear separately on the eSchools Calendar tool.

App

Icon

eSchools have developed an app for smart phones which can help you keep up to date with notices and communications from the school.


Staff Chat

Icon

The Staff Chat function allows Administrators, Teachers and Staff users to converse on the platform. Unlike Messages, the Staff Chat facility will display whole conversations so you can see all replies.

Groups

Icon

Create areas for other groups such as after school clubs or sports activities. Within these areas you can set up a unique group page, begin discussions and assign projects, just as you can with classes. The initial Groups window will display your groups into chunky buttons, so that you can keep details for each group separate; perfect for teachers involved with multiple groups.
