Information for Student Online School Accounts

16 March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please can you ensure your child/ren have a log in for Office365 to enable them to access Ruler as we are preparing resources for all students to access from home should the government announce school closure.

  • Students in Year 7 to 9 should have their details as they use the system to access their Knowledge Organisers 
  • Students in Years 10 & 11 have recently been given stickers with updated details on.

If your child does not have a log in for Office365 please email requesting one - please include their Full Name and Registration Group in the message.  

We will keep you fully informed should any decision be made regarding school closure.   At present the advice from the DfE remains the same as in my previous correspondence, all schools remain open unless advised to close by Public health England.
