Changing course for classes and individuals

< All Topics

It is very important that you have selected the correct course for your class. We recommend changing course for your class so that if your class is in Reception, Year 1, or Year 2 then choose the Reception, Year 1, or Year 2 courses. If your class is in Year 3, 4, 5, or 6 then select the appropriate Starter course. For example, if they are in Year 4, and have not completed the Year 3 course, you should choose the Year 4 Starter course. This article provides step-by-step instructions for changing courses for classes and individuals.

For more in-depth information about choosing the appropriate course read our choosing courses for your classes guide.

Changing course for a class

Following these steps changes the current course for the whole class. Please note that you can always see the class’ progress on other courses by going to the Progress page and using the dropdown menu to change the course.

  1. Log in at
  2. Go to the Classes page.
  3. Change the course using the dropdown menu. This guide will help you choose the right course.
  4. Click on the Update button.

Changing course for an individual student

If you have a student who is new, or is finding the current course too easy, or too difficult you can put them on a different course to the rest of their class.

  1. Log in at
  2. Go to the Classes page.
  3. Click on the Progress button for the class your student is in.
  4. Click on the name of the pupil.
  5. Click on the course dropdown and change it to the course you want.
  6. Click on the Assign Course button that appears next to the dropdown.

Your student has now changed course. Please note that now when you go to the Progress table for their class you’ll need to use the dropdown to see this student’s progress, as the Progress page will always default to the class’ course.

Also, to unlock units for them you’ll need to use the dropdown menu to change the course to the one they are on, and then unlock the levels there.
