Microsoft Teams

Accessing Microsoft Teams via the app and online

This page will give you help and advice on how to use Microsoft Teams. Regardless whether you are using a mobile device or computer, we strongly recommend downloading the Microsoft Teams app for your device as it makes logging in and using the platform so much easier than doing this through the browser each time.

Logging into Teams

Your children will already have brought home their username and passwords to log in, but if for any reason you can’t find this or need a reminder of what it is, please contact your child’s class teacher who will be able to help. This can be done by contacting the school office or messaging your child’s class teacher on Seesaw.

Navigating around Teams and accessing content

Perhaps the best way for the children to learn about Teams is to explore it themselves, but the link below gives a brief overview of what Teams will look like for your child and how they can access content their teachers have supplied for them to work through at home.

Accessing live feedback sessions

As has been outlined in the documentation regarding remote learning we have sent home, teachers will be online their timetables for face to face communication for children who are having to remote learn each week.

For Nursery and Reception, your home learning will be sent out daily through the seesaw app.

Submitting work through Teams

If the absence from school is likely to be a short term one, such as a few days, teachers will mark the work children complete at home when they return to school. However, if a child has to self isolate for 14 days, there clearly needs to be some daily feedback and accountability for the children submitting their work.
