In the event of any enforced school closure, our staff will do their best to provide learning resources to support your child’s education.
The method that will be used by teachers to send work will be “ClassCharts” which has been used for the setting of homework since September. Some departments may also provide work using other online resources such as Educake, Maths Watch and Microsoft OneNote.
A list of shared email address for departments and year teams is published below, and any queries regarding work should be sent to these. The shared email addresses will be checked and responded to regularly by members of staff, and though this may not always be your child’s usual class teacher they will be the most qualified person available to deal with the query.
At the bottom of this page is information about the student’s school email address, OneDrive and other Microsoft Apps through the student portal as well as basic instructions of how to access this.
There are also instructions on how to install Office 365 on your PC (free to all current students) and how to open Microsoft Office documents on an IPad.

All students have a school email address.
It is their username (for logging onto school computers) followed by @meadowhead.sheffield.sch.uk
For example: JohnSmithfirstname.lastname@example.org
The password would be the same one used when logging on to school computers.
The Student Portal
Clicking the Student Login link at the top of the school website will take students to the Student Portal Home Page, where they use their school email address to login. Here they can access their One Drive (top menu link 'My Onedrive') and their Apps, such as Word and Powerpoint online (click on the dotted square in the top left of the portal page)
All students at Meadowhead have access to over 1000 popular titles to borrow on our e-book platform, completely free and just using their normal school login details. Students can read a book on a computer, android device, ipad or kindle fire.
