To successfully work remotely you will need access to Office 365 and Show my Homework (Satchel). Office 365 includes your school email account which you need to reset your SMHW details if you don’t know them
> We have set up an email address firstname.lastname@example.org to allow parents or students to email us for login details for Office 365 and Show My Homework.
We hope you are all settling well into routines at home with regards to home learning.
All teachers are setting work on Show my homework, students and parents should all have logins for the platform. Please ensure your children are checking this regularly.
Students can upload work to SMHW or email work directly to teachers who can provide some feedback. Students should be using their Crofton School email account or SMHW to communicate with members of staff.
In many cases mark schemes and model answers will also be uploaded so students can self-assess their work.
Some students may find some aspects of the work demanding. Please stress to your children that they must not worry if they are unable to complete all the work. They should try as much as they can. They can communicate to their teachers via SMHW and hopefully this will help clarify any concerns they may have.
It is really vital to continue to encourage your children to read. Hopefully they have a selection of books at home, within the home learning booklet there are links to online reading platforms and suggested books for Years 7-9.
The home learning booklet will provide lots of good advice and additional resources to support your children at home. Keeping a good balance of activities is really crucial.
We would encourage you to actively engage your children in planning their day.
For Year 11s, now that we have confirmed there is no need for further GCSE related study, work set will now focus on preparing for transition to Further Education and training. This will be communicated directly to Year 11 students and parents as it becomes available and will be posted on the Year 11 Pages.
We are always keen to share ideas, if you have discovered any good links or resources please do send them in via email. I can then share them with other parents and add them to the website.
