Welcome to ACARA's new Principals' Portal

The Principals’ Portal lets authorised school staff perform the following actions on the My School website:

  1. preview their school's full profile prior to its publication going live
  2. update their school's profile comment 
  3. update their school's URL 
  4. update their school's location 
  5. for Independent schools, update their governing body.

Getting started

To get started, please click or tap 'Forgot password' on the left side of this screen and enter your email address when prompted. Some approved accounts have already been transferred into the new Principals' Portal by some jurisdictions, so if you don’t receive a confirmation email with a reset password token within one minute, please request access.

Not registered?

Click or tap ‘Request access’ on the left side of this screen to create a new account with a new email address. Please note ACARA may contact your school to confirm authorisation before approving your request.

Registered but changed schools?

If you have moved schools but still have the same email address, sign in with your email address, click 'Modify my details', add your new school, delete your old school, click submit and sign out. ACARA will then approve this update and notify you when your new school has been added to your account.

Please note that if you received a new email address with your new school, you will need to request access.
