Free school meals 

For students eligible for free school meals our caterers have put together a package of ingredients that will enable you to make a healthy lunch for your child each day. The package covers a week and you will be contacted to confirm you are taking up this offer and arrange collection. 

Accessing your work from home 

In the event that you are required to work from home, should you feel well enough to do so, we ask that you complete work set by your subject teacher via TEAMS. You should try your best to follow your normal school day as if you would be in school by using your timetable to see which lessons you would have. You have been shown in school how to access TEAMS but below is a reminder.   

Accessing TEAMS is done via your email. To do so, log into Office 365 (Office.com) using your school user name and password. NOTE: you will need to put your user name followed by @selstonhigh.org.uk as you are accessing the system outside of the school network   

Example: UName@selstonhigh.org.uk  

In the top left corner of outlook, you should see 9 small squares, click on this and select TEAMS.   

You should then see each of your classes. Your teachers are regularly uploading work to these TEAMS for you to be able to complete the lessons from home. 

Students are encouraged to contact their teachers via email or Teams with any questions or queries they may have. If work is submitted online feedback will be provided. 

If you have any technical issues, please contact school on 01773 810321 and a member of our ICT team will be happy to help you. 

 

If you do not have access to wifi and a laptop/computer, please make school aware as we have a limitted number of laptops available and we will cerytainly be happy to collate work packs for you to do in paper form. 

 

Rewarding positive work at home 

As in the first lockdown, parents are able to issue students with positive points using our Classcharts system. All parents have been sent a code to allow them to access the system. Students are encouraged to work to achieve the points which can be awarded for completion of tasks, reading, physical exercise and helping others. 

Pastoral support 

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if either you or your child are struggling with the current situation. Our Pastoral Team are happy to support you directly or can signpost you to other agencies who can help during the current difficulties.
