In the event of a school closure we will be using Microsoft Teams as a ‘virtual classroom’ for all year groups.  Your child has a personal login to this secure online learning space, where they can access work assigned to them.

To login:

Go to google and type in Microsoft teams into the search bar to access the website.

Type in your child’s email address and password assigned to them (This can be found on the front page of your child’s reading record).

Click on your year group

Tap the tab at the left hand side of the screen that says ‘Assignments’ and complete the work set by your class teacher

We have designed our remote learning curriculum using a range of digital platforms to ensure that the children of St Gregory’s RC Primary School are exposed to a variety of bespoke learning to meet their individual needs.

In the event of a child self-isolating at home or awaiting test results , staff will be providing children daily lessons linked to what the class in school will be accessing that day. The work will be provided on Microsoft Teams.  Pupils in Reception will be provided with a paper copy to support their learning.
