You can create labels for pupils or staff.
As with the Pupil List, your Filters control which pupils will appear on your labels; filter by year, class, or other demographic data to change the pupils you have selected.
Then, go to Display Options to select how the labels will print:
Your Label Sheet Size controls the format on the screen. Set this to match the number of rows and columns on your printable labels.
Fields To Display controls the data that will appear on your labels. You may want to set the first row to Free Text Field and type ‘Parent or carer of:’ and the second row to Pupil Name. Rows can be set to blank by selecting Free Text Field and leaving the text box empty.
You can also set specific rows as bold and set the alignment of the text on the label.
Click Refresh to add your settings to the labels.
You can also save your labels as an office report if you will be printing them again later, just click Refresh + Save as Office Report.
Once you’re happy with your labels, click the white button saying ‘Print’ to generate reports (the usual print logo on the red bar will not carry over the correct formatting).
Change your Margins from your browser's print preview (setting to none will allow the labels to align correctly).
NB: Margins = None and Scale = 100 is a good start, but different printers and labels will format differently so be sure to try a few single page test runs before running for the whole school!
If you wish to create labels using a Microsoft Mail Merge, see ‘How to create labels using Microsoft Mail Merge‘.
