Viewing Seating Plans for All Students

You can now view seating plans for all of the learners in your school using the seating plan function in your Learners icon. You will be able to see which classes have seating plans on Edulink One and will be able to select a class to view where a learner sits. Moreover, you can view additional data for a learner, such as target grades, attainment, SEN information and more. This feature could be very helpful for your school’s SEN team.

If you are interested in this feature, but your school hasn’t configured it yet, your administrator can do this in the Seating Plans tab.

To begin, log in to your Edulink One homepage and click on the Learners icon.

After clicking on the icon, a new window appears where you need to select the learner you would like to view by clicking on their image which will take you directly to their page. You can also use the filters to the left to find a learner. You can search by name, but you can also search by Year, Form, Class, Gender, SIMS Groups, Groups and House.

Once you are on the learner’s screen, you need to find the Seating Plans icon, which could be located in the More section if your school has many functions enabled. Click on the icon to enter the Seating Plans screen.
