Evidence Me Help for Parents

Parent Share is a feature accessed by teachers via Evidence Me. It offers a quick, simple and effective way of proving “parental engagement” in the learning process.

How Parent Share Works

    1. Once a school/ setting has linked your email address to your child’s account, you will be sent a Parent Share invitation to activate your account.
    2. If you would like to participate, click on the link to activate and confirm your email address.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not receive your set up email please check your spam/ junk folder. If it doesn’t appear in there then please contact the school/ setting directly to ensure this has been sent to you.
