As we have various online tools in use to aid students' learning, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to request usernames and/or password resets during times which students are working from home.
All school work set for students is posted to ClassCharts. All students and parents have a login. It is vital that students are accessing ClassCharts and completing all work that has been set
A parents guide to ClassCharts is available for download here.
Parents are encouraged to contact Mr Jones, the school network manager (email@example.com) for help with logging into or accessing any of our learning or communication tools such as ParentMail, student email, ClassCharts, etc
All students need to use the same username and password to access the laptop. Students must NOT enter the regular username and password they use in school - this will not work. They should be using;
- Username: .\chstudent (dot backslash chstudent)
- Password: Password1 (capital P)
Students will not be able to access 'VMWare Horizon Client' on the desktop of the laptop for security reasons.
Students DO NOT have to work on printed/photocopied handouts. So long as they can see work on a screen, they can write on paper or in exercise books available at home. Teachers will continue to set work on ClassCharts during the whole time the school is closed.
All students in these year groups have a school email account. This allows students to email work to teachers where necessary. Instructions as to how they can access this, as well as the suite of MS Office online tools, can be found in the guide you can download here.
