Free Use of Microsoft Office

Office 365 ProPlus

For all Glow users (so all our staff and pupils) it is possible for you to get copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to use on your home machines – PC, Mac, phones and tablets.

You will be able to use a range of Microsoft products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote etc) on up to 15 home devices for free (the 15 licences being split as 5 for PCs and/or Macs, 5 for tablets and 5 for phones).

To do this, login to Glow, from the launch pad click the Office 365 Home tile (image below) then the “Install Office apps” button and follow the instructions.

Note that if you are downloading to an iPad or iPhone the process is different, you have to download the apps from the App Store and then log in using your Glow username. There is more information from Microsoft available here

When logging in, you will be asked to enter your user name and this is your Glow user name plus the domain e.g. gw15examplejames@glow.sch.uk, once you do this, you will be transferred to the usual Glow login screen, once you enter your details here your registration is complete.

The Glow username will only activate the software for as long as that account is active in Glow.

It is also possible to download the apps from within Microsoft O365 – within O365, click on the Office 365 link in the top left of your screen and from the O365 home page, click on “Install Office 2016”

Bounce Back

As part of their Health and Wellbeing all the children have been thinking about resilience and helpful thought processes when things go wrong. Bounce Back is an acrostic to help us all remember these strategies.

During their Golden Time, P2/3 children created a Bounce Back movie. They animated bouncing balls and filmed each other saying the strategies. The film is below (with a special effect to keep our children’s images private).

Fairtrade Stall

As a ‘Fair Aware’ school we are committed to the principles of Fairtrade. The Fairtrade committee will be running a Fairtrade stall on the Open Day, 23rd February, for pupils and visitors. The stall will also be open to pupils during intervals on 23rd, 24th and 25th February. There will be lots of great things to buy, so please come along and support us. The committee, with the help of the pupil council, will report back on their success at the assembly on Friday 4th March. We hope to see you there!FairtradeLogoBig2
