EduLink Parent Portal

As part of our transition process we would like all priority 1 parents to update and verify the details that we have on file for you and your child. You can do this using our parent portal EdulinkOne. This portal is Yewlands Academy’s preferred way of communicating and sharing key information with you and your child now and in the future.

EduLinkOne can be accessed online via a web browser on a computer or via a free app on a compatible mobile phone or tablet (available by searching ‘EdulinkOne’ in the Apple App Store and on Google Play).

You should have received an email containing instructions for setting up your EduLink One account. If you haven’t done so already, please follow these instructions to log into your EduLink One Account.

Once logged into EduLink please click on the ‘Update Information’ icon and follow the guidance on the page. Carefully check and update your information as applicable and then click on the 'save' button at the bottom of the screen. We will then update our records accordingly.

If you haven’t received this email, please email or contact Yewlands Academy on 0114 232 9010.
