What is the Promotion Tool?
Important: Only follow if you manually manage your ParentMail account. You will not have to do this if you roll up your year or registration groups via an import or the MIS link.
The Promotion Tool can be used to roll up your year and registration groups, over the summer period. For example, your Year 5 students will go away for the summer holidays and come back as Year 6 students.
To do this, select the ‘current’ group e.g. Year 5, then select the group that they will be moving into e.g. Year 6. This then creates a new group with next year’s term date on the end. We advise that you work from year groups, highest to lowest, and then registration groups, highest to lowest.
