Editing lessons from within the course - changing the day of the week 

Go to School > Programmes > Courses and click into the course. You can see the scheduled lessons in the Classes & Lessons section.

If you want to change the day of the week or time of the lesson, do not change the times of the current class, as these changes will also affect previous classes and existing attendance marks.

Instead, we advise ending the current timetabled session on the date the last class will run at this time, then adding a new timetabled class to start.

In the slide over, add an effective end date. This is the last day classes will run at this date and time. Then click Save Changes.

You will be asked to confirm your choice.

Then click +Add to add an alternative class for the next set of classes with the required dates/times. In the slide over, add the new times and dates of the sessions, then click Save Changes.

Your new timetable slot will then be scheduled.

Editing timetable slots and lesson times

Go onto School > Timetable > Timetable Administration > Timetable Slots. Use the filter panel at the top of the page to filter your timetable slots by subject, course/class or year group to identify lessons that have the same teacher or are in the same room.

You can click on an individual timetable slot then click Edit to change:

  • The room the class is in

  • Change the time and date of the lesson itself

Editing timetable slots in bulk

Make changes in bulk by ticking the boxes next to the lessons to change, then clicking the blue pencil icon to select the action you'd like to do.

To change what day of the week a lesson falls on, follow the instructions in the section at the top of this article.

Important note for large schools

For large schools, we recommend making changes in batches and waiting until the changes have taken effect to begin on the next batch.

Edit Effective Dates

You can use this option if you'll only be running this class for a certain period during the year and need to change the start dates.

We recommend not to use this option to change the effective start date if you've already begun taking attendance, as this can impact your school’s statutory attendance for past registers. If you need to end slots, you can use the Bulk End Timetable Slots option instead.

Select new dates and tick the box to confirm your changes, then click Save Changes.

Just add in the last date the selected timetable slots should run, then click Save Changes.

Edit Start and End Time
