Year 10: Virtual School update Microsoft Teams

Year 10: Virtual School update Microsoft Teams

5th June 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

I hope this letter finds you and your family well. May I firstly take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done during the past few weeks to support your child’s engagement with the Virtual School.

As of Monday 8th June we will start to use a new platform called Microsoft Teams as the base for our Virtual School. Microsoft Teams is extremely user friendly for students and will make it easier for them to access, complete and submit the work set by their subject teachers. It can be used on a computer, but is more accessible on a mobile phone than the current platform.

In order to support your child in using the new platform, we have constructed a “how to” guide and accompanying videos, to walk them through how to use it. Details of these will be sent to your child’s school email and will also be placed on Frog, so please do encourage them to access these.

During the week commencing 8th June work will continue to be set on Frog and school email alongside Microsoft Teams, so that students have time to get used to the new platform. The Hub team and mentors will also be in touch during the week to help support and resolve any issues.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.

Yours sincerely

Miss Wright
