Pupils will be able to access work from home if they have access to a computer or smart phone.
Pupils will have a username & password (which they use to log in to the computer at school). They will need to know this but most other passwords can be reset using their school email <username>@friarsschool.org.uk
Login in using email and usual password
In Office 365 you will have access to various applications including:
Outlook - for emails (you will need this to pick up any password reset emails)
Note - the first time you use Outlook you may be asked to set the timezone - choose Dublin,Edinborough, London, Lisbon --> Save
Teams - some work may be set on teams and this may also be used for virtual classrooms.
If you have not downloaded Office 365 at home then you can still access it but if you would like to download it, information to do this is here.
It is advisable to use the school email for this but a few pupils have used their own email in which case substitute this for School email in the below.
Login using school email or sometimes just username and SMH password
If you have forgotten the SMH password then click on Forgot password?
This will allow you to send an email to reset the password - type in your SCHOOL email and click reset.
You will then need to go into Office 365 to pick up the email in Outlook.
Open the email and click on the Reset Password button.
Note that the SMH password needs to be at least 10 characters with; small letters, Capital letters, numbers and special characters (e.g. ! or % etc).
This is the same site as the school website but if pupils login using their school username and password they will have access to Course materials via the Course link.
GCSE Pod has many useful videos on all GCSE Subjects.
Year 10 & 11 pupils will have setup logins for this but KS3 - Year 9 pupils may also find this useful and can set up an account if they wish.
To set up a new account Click on "New Here Get Started"
Note - It is advisable to use the SAME USERNAME as at school and put in the SCHOOL email as the reset email address. This way pupils can reset their own password and pick up the reset email in Office 365 should they forget it.
If the reset password email has been set as above then if you do forget your password it can be reset without having to go to the IT department.
If you have not set a Reset email address then we advise that you do this asap in GCSE Pod --> My Account
