Working from Home

During the current COVID lockdown measures, your child can access his/her home learning through Microsoft Teams if they are asked to self-isolate. We are using Microsoft teams for all home learning at QKA. There will be assignments set on Microsoft Teams for your child to complete.

 

Logging into Teams

Microsoft Teams can be access from multiple locations and you are not limited to accessing it from only one location. For example, Teams can be used on a laptop, tablet, and phone simultaneously. Please watch the video for instructions on how to login:

 

 

Follow these written instructions if you cannot access the video above.

Laptop/PC

1. Go to https://teams.microsoft.com/ in a modern web browser (Google Chrome/Microsoft Edge/Mozilla Firefox/Safari are recommended for a smooth experience):

2. Enter your child’s full QKA email address. They should know this, as the first part is just their username for the computers in school. For example, a student called John Smith will have the username john.smith. For Teams, they must add @qka.education at the end to tell Microsoft what school they are at. So, John’s full email address would be john.smith@qka.education:

3. Enter your child’s password for the school computers. Again, they should know this.
