Live Registration

We recognise the importance of being able to build your day around the normal school structures and support the children with maintaining their routines as much as possible.  

Therefore, in order to do this, from Monday 25th January, we will be asking all pupils to log in to Teams at 9.00 am for a live registration.  

This will also give the children an opportunity to see their teacher’s smiling faces and to hear the voices of their classmates. We hope that this will bring the class together and help to restore a sense of belonging and community.  

To preserve the privacy of your children and your homes, the camera function for this meeting will be turned off.  

 

Online Classroom rules 

Our online classroom rules are the same as in the real world classroom: 

•       Be Ready  

Please be on time for registration and have any equipment ready e.g. pencil and paper.   Pay attention to you teacher.  

  • Be Respectful 

Keep yourself muted by turning off your microphone until your teacher asks you to speak.   Use the chat respectfully- be polite at all times.  

  • Be Safe 

Keep your passwords secret. 

Remember to log off when you are finished for the day. 

 

You can find the registration by clicking on the ‘Join’ button under the ‘Posts’ tab in Teams. See picture below. 

How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are any concerns?

Teachers can track whether pupils have logged in, viewed work and submitted work via Teams. This will be logged daily to track engagement of each pupil. 

We will also be tracking pupils’ attendance at the 9.00 am live registration. 

Pupils will be expected to complete their English and Maths work and ‘Hand in’ via Teams or email by 2pm each day. 

Pupils who do not submit work may be called by their class teacher or another member of staff to offer support on how to complete the work. 

Please be aware that teachers will call between 9am and 3pm and will dial from a withheld number. If you miss a call, the teacher may send you a message with a set time that they will call the next day. 

If we do not receive work or are concerned about a lack of engagement with remote learning, the teacher may call more often or someone else from our team may call to offer further support. 

 

How do we get started?

The platform we will be using for remote learning is Microsoft Teams. You can access this in various ways:

From a laptop you can visit portal.office365.com or you can download Teams to your computer using https://teams.microsoft.com/uswe-01/downloads  

From a tablet or mobile phone you can also download the Microsoft Teams app from the Google Play Store or Apple Store. 

From a PlayStation or Xbox you can go to the internet browser and log in as you would on a laptop. 

 

How do I log in?

You can watch a video on how to login for the first time here: https://uptoncourtmy.sharepoint.com/:v:/g/personal/jtheisinger_foxboroughprimary_co_uk/Ef0N5oYP6ARFj1SZlopcjMBaLyDEV6S_1v9ML5-cKkHtg?e=LWEAdf  

Your child’s username will follow the format of the number assigned to the year group, followed by your child’s surname, followed by the first initial of their first name. E.g. 99theisingerj@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Please note that these have been assigned using our official registers and so will correspond with your child’s birth names as given to the school. 

Please see the number for each year group below

 

Reception - 27surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Year 1 - 26surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Year 2 - 25surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Year 3 - 24surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Year 4 - 23surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

Year 5 - 22surnamex@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

All passwords are currently set to: Fox1234

Once you log in for the first time, your child will be asked to set their password. Please make a note of this somewhere safe and secure. Your child will need their password every day to log in to Teams. 

The new password must be: 

8 characters long

Contain an upper case letter

Contain a lower case letter

Contain a number

Not include your child’s name

 

How do we use Teams to view my child’s work?

Once you have logged in, you can watch this video with your children to show you how to use Teams to view the work set by their teacher. 

How to use teams to view my child's work - Instructional Video

 

How do we submit the work?

You can submit work in the following ways:

  • Complete the work directly on Teams as shown in the video above. Click ‘Hand in’ once you have completed it and your teacher will be able to view it straight away. 
  • Take a picture of any handwritten work and upload it to Teams as shown in the video. 
  • EYFS pupils can submit their work via Tapestry. 
  • Email your work to your teacher using the following email addresses:

superEYFS@foxboroughprimary.co.uk  – Nursery and Reception classes superyear1@foxboroughprimary.co.uk – 1 Hedgehog   superyear2@foxboroughprimary.co.uk  – 2 Porcupine superyear3@foxboroughprimary.co.uk  – 3 Robin  superyear4@foxboroughprimary.co.uk – 4 Woodpecker  superyear5@foxboroughprimary.co.uk – 5 Kingfisher 

superyear6@foxboroughprimary.co.uk – 6 Sparrow Hawk & Red Kite

 

Please note that these are one-way inboxes and that teachers will be unable to reply to these emails. They will respond to your work via Teams or in the video for the next day. 

 

 

How will my child receive feedback on their work?

The primary method of feedback will be through responsive teaching. Therefore, we ask that all Maths and English work is submitted by 2pm each day. This is so that your teachers can build the learning for the next day around the work they have received. They will be able to go over any misconceptions as well as celebrate any good examples of work in their videos for the next day. 

If a teacher needs to respond personally to a particular pupil, you may see feedback given on the piece of work and will be notified via Teams. 

Pupils can also communicate with their teacher on the ‘Posts’ tab at the top of Teams. This serves as a

‘chat’ with classmates and their teachers. Please note that all posts are public for everyone in the class to view. 

Teachers will respond to posts in the chat between the hours of 8.30 am and 16.00 pm only. Please be aware that it may take teachers some time to respond as they may be teaching in school, planning or recording lessons. 

 

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:

  • Teachers can set specific work for specific children via Teams. Therefore, work will be tailored to the needs of the child, where appropriate. 
  • Our Inclusion team will be working with families to support wherever we can. 
  • Children with Educational Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) may be invited to work in school so that they can be effectively supported by teachers.

Please check your username and password as set out above. If you are still having difficulty, please email homelearninghelp@foxboroughprimary.co.uk

What if I don’t have access to the internet or a device for my child to use?

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:

  • The school is open to pupils as set out in Government guidance including those who are children of critical workers as well as those who have difficulty accessing remote learning. 

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/954839/ 210120_Parents_Guidance_v3.pdf  

  • We have some tablets and laptops that are available to students with particular needs. 
  • The Government has recently announced help for those that do not have fixed broadband at home, cannot afford additional data or are experiencing disruption to remote learning. 

If any of these apply to your family, please email advice@foxboroughprimary.co.uk to let us know so that we can help you as best we can.
