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
