How Do I View and Book Parents’ Evening Appointments (Teacher)?

Teachers can view your bookings for Parents’ Evening or book appointments on their Learners’/ Parents’ behalf by logging in to your Edulink One account.

Viewing Your Appointments

Teachers must log in to Edulink One (either on the desktop/browser version or the app).  If they are downloading the app for the first time, then they can use the school ID or they can use the school postcode to access the Edulink One login screen.

Log in using the username and password provided by your school’s Edulink One Administrator. If the teacher can’t remember your password, they can reset their password by following the instructions in the article How do I reset my password?

Your school must have Communicator configured before resetting passwords.

Select the Parents’ Evening button to view and book appointments.

Depending on the teacher’s level of access, Parents’ Evening may be located in the More icon of Edulink One. They must click on More to view additional menu items.
