Remote Learning


As government guidelines now state that close contacts of a Covid-19 case no longer need to self-isolate unless advised by Public Health England, we do not expect any bubble closures. However, given the changing nature of these circumstances the information below details contingency plans should we again need to close student bubbles. 

Students who test positive for Covid-19 are required to self-isolate and will be able to access their normal lessons using Microsoft Teams. There may be certain circumstances where this is not possible, in this case learning resources will be provided using Arbor. 

All our live lessons are conducted on Microsoft Teams. To access, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to teams.microsoft.com 
  2. Enter your school computer username@lowryacademy.org.uk
  3. Enter your password as your school computer password
  4. Click on 'Use the web app instead'
  5. Select the Calendar icon from the column on the left of the screen
  6. On your timetable, double-click the lesson you are due to join
  7. Press Join then, on the next screen, press 'Join Now'

  • Ask for help if you do not understand
  • Engage with the independent tasks that are set
  • Upload your work to ClassCharts following the lesson
  • Enter your FULL name when entering the chat facility.
  • Enjoy the lesson! This is a live broadcast, so you will not be seen or heard. You will just be able to see the teacher, their lesson and hear them teach you.

DO NOT:

  • Type anything into the Q&A box that isn’t related to learning. If you do, it will not be published anyway, so nobody will be able to see it.
