Microsoft Teams

During this lockdown, we will be using Microsoft Teams as our online learning platform. This will allow teachers to host live lessons, post recorded explanations, add learning materials, worksheets and quizzes. Completed work can then be uploaded and feedback given by the class teacher. This virtual classroom will also allow for safe interaction between the children and the teachers via comments and feedback.  

Using other Devices to Log onto Teams
Microsoft Teams is accessible on many different devices, you do not necessarily need a laptop. 

  • Tablet or Smartphone - This often works better if you download the 'Teams' App.
  • X-Box or Playstation 4 - Watch this Youtube video for more details (Freeman CP School is not responsible for the content of external sites).
  • Samsung TV/Samsung smartphone combination. More information here.

School Expectations
Just as in school, we will have high expectations of everyone’s behaviour when using Teams to access learning online. Please can we ask that parents, carers and children all read / have read to them, the following Code of Conduct, to ensure you are aware of the rules and expectations that we have. This will help to keep everyone safe and happy - thank you! 

Code of Conduct for Using Teams:

When using the messaging or comments features everyone will:

  • Use kind words only and not say anything that could upset someone else
  • Be kind, helpful and respectful of others

No-one will:

  • Take screen shots / record conversations without the specific permission of the teacher

When joining live-streamed sessions everyone will:

  • Listen carefully to whoever is talking
  • Keep themselves muted when asked to by the teacher
  • Be appropriately dressed (uniform is not necessary)
  • Make sure they do not have anything in view that might offend / upset others
  • Keep to the rules given by the teacher for that lesson, e.g show you want to speak by raising your hand

No-one will: 

  • Attempt to record the lesson without the specifc permission of the teacher
  • Share access to the lesson with anyone outside of the class
  • Show unkindness to anyone

It will be assumed that by using your school login details to access Teams, both parents/carers and chidlren have read and agreed to the above school code of conduct. 

This is new technology for us so we may find that there are some teething issues! Thank you for your understanding as we become more familiar with how Teams works. If you have any queries, please contact the school in the usual way: admin@freeman.suffolk.sch.uk
