Remote Learning Support
If your child or a class bubble has to isolate, or there is a school closure, students should access their normal timetabled lessons via Microsoft Teams from home. If your child does not have a laptop/suitable alternative device with which to access this remote learning provision, please go to the following page Harrogate High School | Northern Star Academies Trust - Coronavirus Update. Here you will find information on the borrowing a laptop from school. Please first click on and read the Laptop Home School Agreement (there is no need to print/sign this or send it via email) then click on the Parent/Carer declaration form, fill-in the details and submit this. We will then get back to you about borrowing a laptop.
Using Microsoft Teams
Your child can access Microsoft Teams on their device via the web at www.office.com by logging in with their school email and password (this gives them access to all the Microsoft Office apps, including Outlook for their emails). However, it is advisable to download the Teams desktop app from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/download-app, as this has full functionality. Your child will need to sign-in to this app, again with their school email and password. They can then see their class team(s), a calendar with all their scheduled lesson ‘meetings’ and a summary of activity, as well as some other, less important things. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance with your child’s school email address or password or with accessing Teams.
Accessing School Emails
It is also important for your child to access their school email regularly during any period of remote learning, so that they see invitations to Teams live lesson meetings from their teachers, and they can keep up-to-date with information from school. They can access this through Outlook at www.office.com
Teachers may direct students to access some materials on the VLE (‘Frog’). These videos show how to access and use the VLE.
