Glow and Microsoft Teams – Important Information for Parents and Carers

“Glow is the national online service funded by Scottish Government and provided by Education Scotland. This learning environment provides learners and educators across Scotland with access to a wide set of innovative digital services and resources designed to enhance learning and teaching across the whole curriculum.

Access to Glow is restricted to learners and educators who are issued with an account that can provide access to a number of different online services such as Microsoft Office 365G Suite for Education and Glow Blogs.

Online safety is of utmost importance in the delivery and management of Glow. Glow is not an open system, and should be viewed as an extension of the school/education establishment. Only learners, and adults who require access in relation to their role as teaching or support staff, are provided with Glow accounts. All adults will have been Disclosure Scotland checked at minimum prior to their individual Glow account being created. Therefore parents/carers logging in using their child’s Glow (and Teams) account and using Glow (and Teams) is not permitted; and in addition, schools should not issue children’s Glow accounts directly to parents.”The whole article can be found at https://glowconnect.org.uk/about-glow/glow-for-parents/

Primary 2 Weekly Learning (25th Jan)

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all managed to have a nice weekend. You will find all of this week’s activities in SeeSaw. You can get to today’s learning by clicking on the weekly learning activity I have pinned to the top. Then choose the day and click on the first activity.

Please remember there is no pressure to complete all tasks. Just do what you can.

Both Sumdog and Education City are available to use in addition to all of the activities in SeeSaw. You should have your password for these at home. There are also daily PE sessions with Joe Wicks at 9 am on You Tube.

Thank you to all the parents and carers for your support.

Take care.

Mr Benyon

Weather Warning

Dear Parent/Carer,

If your child is currently attending school, please be aware that heavy snow has been forecast for the next few days.  Please listen to Radio Forth or check the West Lothian Council Facebook page for advice on school closures.  Staff will be making every attempt to get to school, however this may be delayed due to road conditions.  Please make sure you leave your child in the care of a staff member, do not leave them unattended at the foyer or in the playground in case staff have been delayed.

 

Thank you

 

Mrs F Burns
