Microsoft Teams - Online Lessons and Learning
All our families and students that were learning with us from home throughout the national lockdown, you will hopefully now be very familiar with Microsoft Teams. For everyone newer to the school and those looking for some more guidance, we hope to offer it here.
Microsoft Teams is an online platform that can be used to connect our teachers to our students. Staff and students can safely and securely teach live lessons, set and give feedback on work, and allow two-way communication between both parties. We also use it for online assemblies and sharing key messages with students. We will do this, even after the challenges of COVID-19 have passed.
Only users with an Oasis IT and email account can gain access to our MS Teams, ensuring students online safety and confidence in who they will see and speak to on the platform.
- Users must know their school email address and password (used to log in to our computers in school too) to gain access.
- If a student does not know their username and password they should email their head of year, assistant head of year of pastoral leader to get it reset (contact details below)
- Guidance on using MS Teams and how to navigate it can be found here
Using MS Teams
- To support students using MS Teams we have put together some mini guides to the key features
- TIPS AND TRICKS GUIDES
- Your teacher will and pastoral tutors will also be happy to help if you ask!
