Creating a new guardian, family member or contact for a student

This article shows how to add a new guardian and link them to a student.


You'll need the Student: Guardians: Administer All/My Students permission to access this page. If you don't have the permission, you'll need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.


To add a new guardian or family member, go to the Student Profile of the child and scroll down to the Family, Guardians and Contacts section.  Click on the green +Add button.



On the slide over, input the guardian's details and choose their relationship to the child.  There are three checkboxes that you can tick or untick:

  • Legal guardian and Primary guardian - Whether the guardian is responsible for the child: What is the difference?
  • Authorised to collect - Whether the guardian can pick the student up.



Under the Guardian Contact Details section of the slide over, choose the priority for the Emergency Contact or choose Not an Emergency Contact if they are not to be contacted. 

You can also choose to use the student's home number or a new number for the guardian you are adding. 

Once you are happy the details are correct, click the green Add Guardian button.
