Learning from home

As part of our contingency plan for learning from home should schools close, we are moving all classrooms onto Microsoft Teams.  There is a user guide to help you and your child to navigate the Teams environment and complete work independently.  


All of the Microsoft applications can be accessed and used through Hwb on any internet browser like Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.  Provided consent has been given, the whole Microsoft suite can be downloaded through Microsoft’s website or through Hwb for free on any laptop, PC or Macbook.   To use a mobile device all the apps can be downloaded from any app store.


Your child’s username and password is on the front page of the paper copy of the user guide sent home 18.03 to those children still in school.  A text with the log in details has been sent to individual children who are unable to come to school.


Please check access to their account as soon as you can to ensure your child will be able to access their learning from home without interruption.  Please raise any issues with us as soon as they arise.


If you have not yet provided permission for your child to access all of Hwb’s services please download and complete this form and email it to [email protected]


This is important to do as soon as possible.  


Without consent your child will not be able to use the downloaded apps, which may result in limited access to their work from home.
