Epraise

PARENT GUIDE

Introduction
Epraise gives you the opportunity to see how well your child/children are getting on and what’s going on at the school. This guide will show you how to register an account online and what information you can see. Don’t worry if you can’t see everything that is in the guide as each school can use epraise differently.

Logging In
You will initially need to register by visiting this link and searching for the school your child attends:
http://www.epraise.co.uk/index.php?view=schools
Enter the email address you gave to the school, leaving the password field blank and select the Login/Register
button. Epraise will send you an email containing a link that will allow you to set up your password. If you
forget your password, simply follow the above process to get a new link.

Tutorials & Quicklinks
When you first login you will see a tutorial which will show you different parts of the site and any changes that
we’ve made. On the top right of the screen you’ll see 3 icons which are your quicklinks:
Student icon – takes you directly to your child’s/children’s profiles.
Calendar icon – takes you to their Planner which you can also access under the My children tab.
Exit icon - logs you out of the site.

Dashboard
The first screen you’ll see is the dashboard. This is an overview of what has been happening at the school.

Me > Settings
Here you can change your password and set your notification preferences. Milestone notifications are alerts
sent directly to your email address each time your child/children reaches a milestone which is achieved by
reaching a certain number of points.

Your child’s/children’s profile
You can view your child/children’s profile under the My children tab. Here you can see how many points they
have been awarded and how well they have been doing in each subject and category. Each tab shows different information related to your child’s progress throughout school if enabled, e.g. Demerits, Interventions and Assessments.

Planner
Here you can view all your child’s/children’s homework and notes set by their teachers. You will have the
option to see any attachments included and can see what has been Set, Due, Overdue or Completed.

Community > Get involved
Here you will see various activities and groups available to your child/children where you can then sign them
up. They can even earn points indicated by the activities with praise points in the corner.

Community > Parents evening
Parents evening events will display here. To view your schedule just click on the event you want. You may get
invited or be given an option to book appointments to see your child’s teacher, to do this simply select the
Book appointment button and fill in the details.

Community > Charitable causes
Charitable causes hold all the school charities that students can donate their money to. When a points limit
has been reached then the school can donate that equivalent value to the charity.

Rewards > Shop & Prize draws
The shop enables you to see what items your child/children can exchange for their points. Prize draws are
raffle style incentives available at the school. You can see what’s available for your child/children and how they can go about entering.
