Student Email Addresses
Every student at Queen's Park High School has an email address as part of their school network account. The email address is email@example.com and uses the same password they use to sign into the school computers and EduLink One.
Online Learning - Microsoft Teams
To support students with their studies during self isolation or if they are unable to get into school, resources have been uploaded onto Teams to enable students to continue their learning in their subjects. In the event of a bubble of students needing to isolate, teachers will endeavour to deliver lessons via teams in a 'blended' fashion so that those who are isolated at home can access the live lessons as they happen in school. Information as to how when these will be delivered will be communicated to isolating students via EduLink and set up on the pertinent class channel on Teams.
Microsoft Teams can be accessed via any type of smart phone (should a laptop/tablet not be available). The app is free to download and login information is the same as accessing via a computer or tablet.
For those students who are struggling to access Microsoft Teams, Julia and Hannah from our Sixth Form Leadership Team have put together a short video to explain how it works when using a smart phone or computer.
