Important information

Teams is an online environment – it is important that you engage with Teams like you would in a classroom. Teachers will always be looking for positive interaction – bear this in mind.

  • Use positive language, and do not use inappropriate terms
  • Concentrate on learning, not posting – keep your posts concise and meaningful
  • Tag teachers and pupils when appropriate to the conversation

For Parents

This video is a short guide to how Teams works:

S2 Pupils

All S2 pupils should join their class groups – both practical set and registration class. Teachers will use the channels in this group to discuss learning and answer questions. They will also be able to set work for you to access through this channel and give you instructions.

The General channel is for teachers to use. You will find information about work in this channel. You can use each of the other channels to discuss with your teacher.

We will be using Teams after the summer, so make sure you understand how it works by following our guides above.

Follow the video instructions above to use Join code to join your teams.

You will find the links to the teams in your email.

All S3 pupils should join the subject they have taken. You will receive an email reminding you of your choices, along with information on joining teams.

The General channel is for teachers to use. You can use each of the other channels to discuss with your teacher.
