How can my child access the live lessons whilst they are at home?
Your child’s teacher will post the time and date of the scheduled lesson on Satchel One. This will follow your child’s normal timetable. At the designated time, your child should logon to Microsoft Teams in order to access the lessons. They will need their school login (their “welearn365” username and password.) All lessons will be recorded and posted onto Microsoft Teams so in the event of your child not being able to access a lesson live, they can access it later at a convenient time.
A video guide on how to access Microsoft Teams is available to watch here:
If your child has forgotten their username or password they should contact the ICT helpdesk at this email address: email@example.com
When and how will my child receive feedback from the teacher?
Teachers will be able to respond to questions students may have during live lessons. Teachers will also continue to set home learning via Satchel:One and students will continue to receive feedback at set times according to the Department schedule.
How can I help to ensure my child uses Microsoft Teams responsibly?
Students can access Microsoft Teams to communicate with one another at any time and we would therefore ask that parents and students ensure that the platform is used responsibly. Students should only use Microsoft Teams to communicate with their teacher or each other at the designated time on their remote learning timetable and when their teacher is present online. If students do not use the platform responsibly they will be subject to sanctions and may have their access to online lessons withdrawn.
All lessons will be recorded so students should have the camera function turned off if they do not wish to be seen. They should also have their microphones turned off until the teacher asks them to “unmute” (for example, to answer a question.)
How can my child make the most of remote learning?
If possible students should access their online lessons in a quiet space and have the relevant equipment (pen, paper, calculator etc) to hand. They should also have their phones and other distractions switched off or in another room.
