Introduction to managing students.

Here's a video on how you can manage your class roster.


Add students easily

Click your chosen class to expand it, and then click 'Add Student'.

Sumdog automatically checks for duplicates. If you see the student already has a login, just click it to add it to your class. If not, choose 'Create new login'.

Remove students easily

To remove a student from your school entirely, drag their name into the 'Removed Students' section. 

Removed students stay there for six months, unless they join another school or a family first.

If you've used our old student and class management tools, you'll notice some changes:

  • Classes are used to manage login details and subscription places.
  • Each student can now be in only one class.
  • You can also use groups to manage your students.
  • Unlike classes, students can be in more than one group.

If you have a Sumdog subscription, here's how you manage it:

  • If you purchased a school wide subscription, every class will have a gold start next to it

  • If you purchased a grade/year group wide subscription, every class with students in that grade/year group will have a gold star next to it. 

  • If you purchased a class subscription, you will already have told us which classes should be subscribed. They will automatically have a gold star next to it. If you want to transfer the subscription to a different class, click the gold star and choose 'move this to a different class'
