At Shuttleworth College we believe that remote learning shouldn’t provide a barrier to our students accessing their education, which is why we continue to offer a full timetable to enable us to ‘succeed together’.
During periods of self-isolation or national lockdown students can access their lessons through Microsoft Teams as per the Remote Learning Plan. See our useful Help Guide for more information on how to use Microsoft Teams.
We advise that students access their lessons via a desktop or laptop wherever possible to enable full functionality of Microsoft Teams. If you do not have a suitable device available and due to financial constraints are unable to purchase a suitable device please contact Covid19@shuttleworth.lancs.sch.uk as school have a limited number of laptops that can be loaned out for this purpose.
Similarly, if you do not have access to the internet or access is limited there is a DFE scheme to provide free mobile data for this purpose. This will allow you to use your mobile phone as a wifi hotspot to connect other devices to. More information on accessing free data through this scheme is available here.
Students experiencing any ICT issues such as log on failure or forgotten passwords can contact the school ICT Support team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope this has given you a sense of what we strive to offer to students here at Shuttleworth. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
