Guide to Home-Learning with Microsoft Teams
The first thing is to familiarise yourself with your son or daughters Microsoft Teams platform. This is where teachers will set work and even conduct virtual learning sessions.
Please check on Teams to see what specific activities your child's teacher has set or what your platform your teacher is recommending for a particular topic.
We also have other great resources that your teachers may refer to in communications in Teams or you may just want to take a look at yourselves. Click here to visit our Home Learning Resources page.
Students, please keep in touch with us via 'Teams'. We are here for you, on-line, during the school day, every school day. Keep learning. Keep smiling.
Is your child's device keeping them safe?
Please be aware that when your children are accessing Microsoft Teams using their own devices, at home or on the move, and not using the school’s network, it is your responsibility to ensure these devices have:-
- up-to-date virus and malware protection and
- the latest updates and patches from the device manufacturer
- the latest updates to any software and that
- you have set the highest privacy settings for safe browsing to keep you child safe online
When using the school’s systems we have an industry standard firewall which is constantly updated but when not on our network the students do not have the benefits of this. Please ensure the device they are using is fit for purpose and you are confident that they can use it safely.
