The Just2easy Parent Portal allows parents/carers an over-the-shoulder view of their child's J2e account.
A parent/carer will need to be sent an invitation email and create a Parent Portal account before accessing the Parent Portal. For information on how to link your pupils with parent/carer accounts please read this article.
Once logged in, they will be able to select a child's profile (if they have multiple pupil accounts linked) :
Once a profile is selected, parents/carers will be able to see the Parent Portal homescreen. This will give an overview of homework tasks, J2messages, J2stars points awarded. There are also links to their child's files, submitted work, j2message, J2webby and uploading files on their child's behalf:
Parents/carers will be able to view tasks set through J2homework. They will be able to access the homework title, description and linked urls/documents. They will not have the option to mark work as complete:
Clicking on the homework entry will showcase the homework activity:
Please note, this is only a showcase of the outstanding homework. Children will need to login to complete their homework within their own login.
Parents/carers will be able to view their child's class message board/s, and contact their child's registration class teacher directly. Schools have the ability to be able to switch off parent messaging, and to configure which teachers each classes parents/carers can message.
J2message will look like this within the parent view:
If a parent responds to a message within a class discussion board, it will move the message to a 1:1 message between the parent and the teacher who wrote the original message.
Parents are not able to message within the class discussion board.
Child files will allow the parent/carer to see their child's MyFiles and shared files areas:
Parents/carers will be able to open work from within MyFiles and make revisions. This is a great function to allow parents to support their children with completing their work, without needing to login with their child's login details!
The upload files area allows parents/carers to upload work to their child's account. Parent/carers can use the "choose file" button to select work from an external source such as a laptop hard drive or a phone/tablet photo library. Photos and videos can also be added straight in when accessing via the Parent Portal app:
The class blog button will give parents/carers access to the school J2webby site, specifically their child's class blog. Parents/carers will have view-only permissions, so will be unable to make comments on any J2webby post. view-only
Please note Parents/carers will be able to navigate to other class blogs and view posts by other children within school. Please bear this in mind when moderating work for J2webby, ensuring all content is compliant with in-school data permissions held for individuals.
