Microsoft Teams Support

Microsoft Teams at Saint Patrick's

From September 2020, when students have to stay at home to self-isolate or due to local lockdown and/or bubble closure, students will follow their school timetable (as shown below) and complete lessons online at the correct times, if they are well and able to do so. Our teachers will provide high quality online lessons through Microsoft Teams Assignments. Instructions for using Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams Assignments are available below. If children do not have access to a computer, laptop or tablet, or do not have access to the internet, to study remotely at home when self-isolating or at home during a local lockdown, they should inform the school via the year group email addresses. If children cannot study online at home, paper resources can be collected from the school main office via a pre-arranged appointment. To support students who are studying remotely during self-isolation or local lockdown, their teachers will be in frequent contact, and will also offer support and feedback whenever possible. Our remote learning provision will be updated in line with government advice as it changes: current guidance is available below.
