Remote Learning How-to Guide
Last year we successfully established remote learning programmes using the Microsoft Teams platform and we thought it would useful to share with parents in more detail how this operates.
All students are emailed daily by the Remote Learning Team to their school email address. This email will include additional attachments of well-being and weekly assembly materials as well as FAQ sheets detailing support for any technical difficulties. Please judge how much each child completes each day according to the needs of your child. We have learnt from your emails that a different response is needed for each child. If your child requires any help with their lesson, they should email their class teacher or email@example.com
Student Log ins;
All student school usernames follow a pattern: firstname_lastnameXX@student.theappletonschool.org where XX represents the year they finish year 11:
- Year 13 – 20
- Year 12 – 21
- Year 11 – 22
- Year 10 – 23
- Year 9 – 24
- Year 8 – 25
- Year 7 – 26
If any student is still having difficulty with their school log in or password they should contact the ICT Technical team on: ICTTechnicalOffice@theappletonschool.org
The school timetable operates on a four week rotation, for your reference we are currently in week 4. Students are also provided with a link to view their school timetable at Edulink One using their school email address and password, then clicking on the ‘Timetable’ icon:
To access Microsoft Teams your child should go to https://teams.microsoft.com and then log in with their school email address and password. It is important that your child is already logged on to Microsoft Teams, ready to go, at the start of each lesson. If, for unforeseen circumstances, a live lesson is not possible, for example, due to staff illness, there will be assignment work set on Teams. Your child should complete this work during the scheduled lesson time.
