Class Charts

We have recently started to use Class Charts at Hodgson Academy. This will replace SIMS Learning Gateway which we currently use.

Class Charts is an online system that teachers use to track achievement and behaviour throughout the school day. We believe in working closely with parents and one of the key benefits of using Class Charts is that we are able to securely share your child(s) achievement and behaviour report with you and so keep you up to date in real-time.

Class Charts will also let parents know via e-mail when your child has been issued with a detention. This will replace letters and phone calls from staff concerning detentions. Notifications will be sent to the e-mail address that you sign up to Class Charts with.

By now you should have received a unique code for each child that you can register with class charts below. You will need to create an account and enter the code at the link below:

Links to mobile phone apps are also available to parents from this page. If you have more than one child in the school then you can enter additional student codes once you have created an account and are logged in. There is also a quick start guide for parents containing more information and instructions which you may find useful, located here:

Class Charts for iOS devices (Apple)
Class Charts for Android devices (Google, Samsung, etc)

The Learning Gateway

The Learning GatewayaHodgson Academy provides parents with real time information about their children’s life at the academy on a round the clock basis – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The gateway gives parents encrypted electronic access to their own child’s personal information.

All parents are given a unique username and password, which enables them to access a secure website. Once logged on, parents can see some of the information stored about their child on the academy database, including attendance, achievement records (including PAUSE+ points), behaviour records, timetables and other personal information.

This is updated in real time; meaning as soon as the change is made at the academy it can be viewed on the Learning Gateway.

If you require assistance with Hodgson’s Learning Gateway or would like to report any issues please:


We can only issue password resets to registered email addresses for each account.

Please include your name, username, any student names, their forms and your relationship to them where relevant.
