Remote Learning Support
If your child must isolate, or there is a school closure due to high infection rates, students should access their normal timetabled lessons via Microsoft Teams from home if they are well enough to do so (except for PE, during which they should aim to do some physical activity – suggestions on the school VLE). If your child does not have a laptop/suitable alternative device with which to access this remote learning provision on Teams, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child’s teacher feels that a live remote lesson would be inappropriate due to perhaps, the practical nature of the learning, they will email work to your child to complete.
If your child needs/wishes to complete Maths practice or any revision activities, links to useful platforms can be found lower down this page.
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 email@example.com 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.
