Student Office 365 Accounts for Email and Microsoft Teams
All students at The Warriner School have access to the school email system. Students are encouraged to access the email portal from home and at school, from which they can also download the full suite of Microsoft Office programs. For more information on how to do this click here.
Staff are not permitted to email students’ personal email addresses so it is imperative that students communication with their teachers is via the school email system.
To access email students should go to www.office.com
To login to email students must use their network user id and add @warriner.oxon.sch.uk after. For example a student with user id JBloggs123 would enter JBloggs123@warriner.oxon.sch.uk
The password for students to access email is identical to their network password.
Remote Learning through Microsoft Teams
During periods of partial closure, or if a student is self-isolating but well enough to access their learning, lessons will be live-streamed via Microsoft Teams. Please watch our in-house video guide:
To access a live lesson students must not wait for an individual invitation, but click on the 'Teams' icon within Microsoft Teams and select the relevant class team. The streamed lesson will show on the posts feed as a meeting, with a clear 'join' button available.
It is not always appropriate or possible for some lessons to be live-streamed; in these cases work will be assigned to students on Satchel:One through the Classwork task type, which is coded red on students' to-do lists, and students should be signposted to this by their class teacher in advance of the lesson.
Microsoft have produced a guide for parents and carers on accessing Teams, which can be found here.
For help with live lessons, this instructional video from Mr Tompkins EdTech is really useful:
If you have any issues please contact our IT support department on 01295 232243 or online here.
Widely used online platforms
Our homework platform Satchel:One (formerly Show My Homework) is already used by all students, and homework will continue to be set via this platform throughout any periods of isolation or lockdown. The Classwork task-type may also be used to provide work or resources for students learning at home, to either complement or replace a live-streamed lesson as needed. Students log in to Satchel:One using their school email address, and there is a 'forgot password?' option if students cannot log in for this reason. Parents also have access to their own account, providing oversight of all students within the family on the same account. If you do not have a parent access code please contact Mrs Ball in Reception who can provide this.
Hegarty Maths is an integral tool within students' Mathematics curriculum. To log in Hegarty requires students to enter their school name, first and last name and date of birth. The first time they log in, they choose a password. If they forget their password, they can request a reset. A teacher must then reset this, and the student can then choose their password again. Teachers will be able to action password reset requests more speedily if students email them directly, rather than go through the Hegarty website. See the Mathematics department page for links to staff email addresses.
We no longer subscribe to GCSEPod as a school however students still have access to many resources to support the development of different study techniques, as well as motivational webinars.
Seneca Learning provides numerous courses and assignments to complement our curriculum, and is used by a number of subjects. Students set up their own accounts and passwords (we recommend using their school email address but it is also possible to use a personal one). Teachers provides students with a class code to set work (assignments) for them to complete; the Seneca link can now be accessed directly via Satchel:One.
If students forget their password they can reset it by clicking a link on the homepage; a time-limited code emailed to them, so students should log in to their email account also. Parents can also create an account to monitor their child but the child has to input their parent code (which they get once they create an account). Click here for further information on parent accounts.
Student Access to Go4Schools via www.go4schools.com
The student login enables students to see the same view of your record in Go as the parent access: your timetable, marks/grades in each class markbook, reports, your attendance record and behaviour information.
Firstly, you need to log in to your account as a First Time User – this video shows you how to do that https://vimeo.com/339107427. You will need to use your school email address to link the account to yourself and you will need to log into your school email to access the password link. PLEASE CHECK YOUR 'OTHER' AND 'JUNK' FOLDERS IF YOU DO NOT APPEAR TO RECEIVE THE PASSWORD EMAIL.
Once logged in, you will see your Go Homepage with all the info we hold for you.

The Warriner School Laptop Programme
The lockdown experience showed how much easier learning from home is when students have the right technology. We have moved a long way in term of teaching and learning methods and want to embrace the opportunity for change. We therefore want to do all we can to help all of our students have access to a suitable device as soon as possible. For remote learning using mobile phones, or sharing devices amongst other family members, doesn’t work well at all when lessons are live online or when homework demands the use of technology. The laptop has become an essential part of our students' required equipment.
Please click on the document below to find out more about our Student Device Scheme.
In the longer term, if a high proportion of students take up the device offer, we shall look to embed the use of technology in day-to-day lessons. By doing so, we can enhance the learning experience in many subjects.
