Welcome to the Home Learning section of our website where you will find information and guidance regarding the range of activities teachers and keyworkers are providing children during the school closure.
Activities will be provided to children via Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams provides an interactive online classroom where teachers and pupils can create and share resources.
How do I get onto Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams can be accessed through glow in the web browser or by downloading the Microsoft Teams app. It is advisable to use the app as some pupils have reported problems accessing files using the web browser . The app can be downloaded onto your computer/tablet/phone from the following link:
Your child should use their glow email (their glow username followed by @glow.sch.uk) along with their glow password. Children are aware of their Glow details. If your child is unable to log on, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with this.
For instructions on accessing Teams through the web browser, please see the following helpsheet:

How often should my child access Teams?
