Arrangements

How is work issued when pupils are self-isolating at home?

All pupils have a Glow log in and password which gives them access to their Glow email, Show My Homework, Teams and Microsoft Office.  Work will be issued on these platforms.

Glow

Pupils can log in to Glow at: https://glow.rmunify.com

A quick video guide for learners to show them how to log into glow can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/_XOij33owaw

Information about Glow for parents and carers can be found here: https://glowconnect.org.uk/about-glow/glow-for-parents/

Some of our learners with additional needs may require support to access materials online. This video highlights some accessibility tools that can help learners with reading, writing, visual and hearing needs: https://youtu.be/RBZPyIYy9DQ

Along with computers, smartphones and tablets, Glow can be accessed on an Xbox or PlayStation console if you have internet access. See this quick guide on how to set this up:

Please remember that password details for Glow should not be shared with anyone. For advice on passwords and more information on the Glow Community Rules, please visit:

Show My Homework (Satchel:One)

As many of our pupils and parents are already familiar with our online platform Show My Homework, all work will be issued via this method in the first instance.

Pupils access SMHW by logging on to their Glow account and SMHW tile will be on the launch pad.

Alternatively, the SMHW App can be downloaded on to any mobile device. Please be careful on your first visit and log in using Glow. For pupils there is no separate password required.

You can also access Show My Homework on a games console. Watch this short video to find out how: https://youtu.be/xSZH-NTwJOA

SMHW For Parents

Most Parents/carers will know their PIN CODE; however, if you have forgotten then please contact the school.

Alternatively, your child can now access their Parent Code on their Profile Page. When a pupil signs in and clicks on Account Settings, beside their profile picture and on the bottom right hand of screen you will see an option to find the Parent Code.

All work issued can be viewed on the Whole School calendar which can be accessed using the link on this page.

Microsoft Teams

Some staff may use Teams as a way to communicate with pupils.  They will provide a code for pupils to join a specific team. This message will be given via SMHW Tasks. The teacher will communicate with pupils directly to help.

Microsoft has produced a helpful guide for parents and carers: Distance Learning with Microsoft 365 Guide for Parents and Carers

Moorfoot Primary School in Gourock has produced a very helpful YouTube playlist of video guides on Teams for parents and pupils which you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLO-_fOYb9IsNQ_OhPm8ValF7HrnzZi744

How Should Work Be Submitted?

Teachers may offer tasks with some self-assessment; however the default setting is currently set for Online Submission. Your teacher will direct you to the work that will be required to be submitted. Click on the tab Submit and there is space for written answers or the facility to attach a document or upload a file.

If you have an iPhone, there is a very handy way to use your phone as a scanner:

  • Go to “Notes” and press the camera button.
  • Select ‘Scan Documents’.
  • Lay out the pages you want to scan.
  • Scan the pages and they will all be saved as one PDF file (easier than images to upload to SMHW, etc.).
