Working From Home

Working from home means that we are reimagining the way we work so that teaching and learning can continue. When working from home you will need access to your Email as this will be the main form of communication used by your teachers for curriculum and core studies, over the coming weeks.

To access your College email please go to https://www.office.com and sign in with your College Email and password.

Remember what makes a great student!

VISION: Just because you are working at home, doesn’t mean that your vision changes. Focus on your long term goals. The next few weeks may be challenging but short.

EFFORT: We expect you to spend exactly the same time learning remotely as you have done while in college. Lessons are set for you – make sure you know how your teachers will communicate with you and complete the work that is set.

SYSTEMS: We are using a wide range of tools to help you access learning; GOOGLE CLASSROOM; MOODLE; EMAIL; ESTREAM; TEAMS. Make sure that you have access to every system that you will need over the coming weeks. You can access all of these easily by logging by going to https://moodle.windsor-forest.ac.uk and clicking the appropriate tile.

PRACTICE: Year 1 students will still be assessed. You must make sure that you are practicing the skills you have learned so far this year. Past papers are loaded on to Moodle and exam board sites for all courses. Make sure you are completing these and revising for your examinations.

ATTITUDE: Change is difficult but you are strong and resilient. The way you manage your time and energies over the next few weeks will determine how successful you are moving forwards. Make positive choices, use all resources available to you and keep in touch!

You can also access a range of other resources to support your learning on-line:
