Working From Home
Working from home for students and staff
It can be worrying for students and their parents when a young person is required to self-isolate at home. Fortunately, at Harris Academy Morden we have been working hard to put systems in place to ensure that the curriculum can continue and the impact on young people is minimised as far as possible.
If your child is well, they should continue to follow their timetable whilst at home. The vast majority of students will be able to take part in online learning in one of the following ways:
Accessing MS Teams via Student Sharepoint – we recommend using Google Chrome for this
Downloading the MS Teams App to a Windows or Apple computer
- Downloading the MS Teams App on an iOS or Android phone or tablet
Students can log in to MS Teams in any of the above ways using their @hfed.net school login. This will then enable them to access the ‘Teams’ for each of their classes and attend each of the lessons at the normal time. Live lessons run for all of the following subjects: English, maths, science, computing, geography, history, RS, art and Spanish. In some practical lessons, it is not possible for the full lesson to be live, but assignments will be set via MS Teams; this is the case for PE, technology, drama, music and EAL.
Teachers will keep a log of online attendance to lessons and will expect your child to submit evidence of work completed, for example by emailing them or sending a picture of their written work. If for any reason your child is not able to access the lessons, or they become unwell during the period of isolation, please contact the school so that we can support you.
