Edulink One brings together the things you need to manage daily school life. It’s a complete engagement and management solution that supports parents, staff and students in and out of the classroom.
It is accessible anywhere and on any device.
***NEW! Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams integration***
Edulink One’s functionality covers everything from registers to parents’ evenings. The features fall into three core areas – Engagement, Teaching, and Administration – all that’s needed to support your school whilst engaging parents and students.
With a user-friendly app or web interface to suit different users, Edulink One ensures data is accurate and up to date by pulling data and writing back to your SIMS management information system (MIS).
What’s more, Edulink One’s features are fully customisable to meet your school’s requirements.

Hosting & Data Security
Edulink One really is a fantastic asset. It’s simple to use and ties so many activities/tasks from school life together in one place. The app has helped improve communication with parents and we’ve seen nothing but benefits from implementing it.
Teachers love the feature where the Pupil Premium, SEN and medical alert flags are shown on the register screen. That’s a great feature. It means that we’ve now got at our fingertips information on who is in our class and what we need to do to support them.
What matters most is that school systems work well and are easy to use. Edulink One is such a great product, it sells itself. Parental engagement has been impressive… the low price is a bonus.
Edulink One is so much more than a parent portal. It has vastly improved our communications with students and parents, and revolutionised our staff’s normal way of working – increasing efficiency and impact. We cannot imagine life without it now!
We invested in Edulink One during the summer term. This was a wise investment. It has been invaluable in improving communication with parents in the summer term and during the reopening of schools in September. Its seamless integration into school life was very beneficial and the best compliment I can give is that we don't know what we would do without it!
