Post-16

POST-16 COMMUNICATION

We are trying to reduce our use of paper, so we have several ways of communicating with you. IT IS IMPORTANT YOU CHECK YOUR EMAILS ON A DAILY BASIS TO AVOID MISSING IMPORTANT COMMUNICATIONS. It is recommended in settings to turn off ‘organise by thread’ and ‘focused’ options to avoid ‘missing’ emails.

Weekly Bulletin: The members of the Post-16 team overseeing each yeargroup will send out a ‘weekly bulletin’ each Monday morning with notices and reminders for the week. Students and the Post-16 SLT can contribute to this.

IGS News: This is a student run platform and Post-16 students take a leading role in this.

Email: All students use Office 365 email. Your email will be the same as Y11, If you are joining IGS for Post-16 this will be in the form ab123456@ilkleygs.co.uk and can be obtained from the Post-16 Office or IT support located on C floor; help information is found on the notice board outside their office. This will also allow you to download Office on to your personal device and home computer for free.

This account will give you access to Outlook (Emails), OneDrive (Online file storage in the cloud) and Calendar (Contains your School Timetable). This can be accessed via an internet browser or installed as an App on your phone or other connected device. The public school calendar can also be added by clicking this link.

All students must access their school emails [@ilkleygs.co.uk account] on a daily basis.

WiFi: You will need to select the mobile Wi-Fi option to connect your chosen device to the school Wi-Fi network; login with school user account [the first part of your email address]. You will be required to abide by the acceptable use policy. You can have up to 2 devices connected to the Wi-Fi e.g. iPad/Laptop and mobile phone. The ICT support office on C Floor can help you connect your devices if required.

Showbie

All students should set up a Showbie account as this is used by many subjects to share resources. For students who were in Year 11 at IGS you can login using the same account you had in Year 11. For students new to IGS you may wish to sign up using your Microsoft (Office 365) email found in ‘Other sign up options’ at (https://my.showbie.com/signup/student) to register.

Where teachers are using Showbie they will inform you of the ‘Joining Code’ and then you can join the class to access materials.
