What is Microsoft Teams?

From Monday 1st June we will be launching our Remote Learning System via Microsoft Teams. Teams is a hub for learning that will give pupils access to all of their lessons and teachers. It can be used to see what work has been set for them, to ask questions to their teachers and to receive marked work back.


The web address for TEAMS can be found by CLICKING HERE


If you need any help accessing Microsoft TEAMS please email teams@smithillsschool.net



Why Microsoft Teams?


Microsoft Teams is available in many different ways, it can be downloaded on a PC, accessed through directly the website or via the Android or Apple app. This gives as much flexibility as possible, allowing pupils without a computer to still access their work through a tablet or phone.

How will it work?


Pupils will need to log into the TEAMS website/app using their normal school email/password. They can also access all of the Microsoft 365 suite using these details, which allows them to download software like Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel (this might be helpful to complete some of the work).


We have created a walkthrough video of how to login/access their work;

Subtitled Version - Click Here


This has been created using the TEAMS app on an Apple device, although the appearance may be slightly different on other systems the steps are still the same.


Logging into teams


Please note your username is your school email address . Its your school username with smithillsschool.net

Your password is your normal school password.


What are our expectations?


Our expectations are that pupils complete all the work set and you remain in contact with their teachers so they can support them, provide feedback and give further instructions.


In order to give all pupils sufficient time to complete their work in detail they be set work for each work as per the timetable below.

If pupils do not have access to remote learning, then please get in touch with us and we will provide work that is appropriate for them which can be picked up from school.


Mr Sidebottom has filmed a short video below to stress the importance of remote learning at home.
