We are delighted to be back in school! Feedback from parent questionnaires at the end of June 2020 together with our own evaluations has determined how we move forward building on the use of technology supporting children's learning following our closure during the Covid pandemic.
From September 2020 we will continue to use Seesaw in Primary 1 - 4 where some interactive homeworks will be set and photos and videos of school life will be shared. We encourage parents to fully engage with teachers as we continue to develop Seesaw this year.
In Primary 5- 7 we will continue to use Microsoft Teams and again assignments will be set and teachers will share relevant information with parents and children.
Please feel free to give us any feedback as the year progresses.
On this page you will find several help documents and a PowerPoint that guide you on how to access My School and Microsoft Teams for P5, P6 and P7 pupils. These documents are also available in Romanian, Polish, Latvian and Arabic.
The full Microsoft Office package, including Word and PowerPoint, is available for all pupils to download to a laptop, PC or iPad, FREE of charge. Please find the help page on how to this below in the documents section.
