The Guide to Home-Learning
Below there is a 'Parent's Guide to Home Learning'. You can also click here to get it.
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 do read the Guide for more details on Teams. There are lots of useful videos on YouTube as well.
Below are some other great resources that your teachers may refer to in communications in Teams or you may just want to take a look at yourselves. This a long list so please check on Teams first to see what specific activities your child's teacher has set or what your platform your teacher is recommending for a particular topic.
But, before we show you these great resources, please take a moment to read about on-line safety.
Is your child’s device keeping them safe?
Please be aware that when your children are accessing Microsoft Teams and other educational platforms 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:-
i) up-to-date virus and malware protection and
ii) the latest updates and patches from the device manufacturer
iii) the latest updates to any software and that
iv) you have set the highest privacy settings for safe browsing to keep your child safe on-line.
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.
