Accessing the IT systems remotely - Guide for students and Parents

School is currently closed due to the Coronavirus emergency and as a result the majority of our students will be learning from home. This page provides advice and information to help students and their families get the best out of our ‘Virtual Learning Environment’ (VLE).

RM Unify will be the central learning platform and the VLE will be main method of setting work.  Use of any additional learning platforms (e.g. Google Classroom) will be directed through the VLE.

  • Teachers will, where possible, work from home and set work remotely for all students (Years 7-13) in line with the school timetable.
  • This means that students should expect to receive roughly five hours of work a day plus homework (where applicable).  For example, if a student has English Monday Period 1 (8.50am-9.50am), it is expected that they would be undertaking work set by their English teacher at home at that time.
  • Where possible, the work will follow on from what students are currently doing, but there may be some subjects/ classes where this is not possible.  Setting work remotely in the creative and practical subjects may be more difficult. 
  • Students must complete all work set and submit it as directed by their teachers.  Staff will check that students are completing work, and where possible will mark it and provide feedback in line with the school’s marking policy. 
  • We have informed students that the best way to access the VLE and other resources (Outlook Email, Office 365, Google classroom and One Drive) is via RM Unify (www.rmunify.com ).  Instructions on how to log on and use RMUnify and the VLE can be viewed in the PDF below, “Accessing the IT systems remotely”.
  • If either you do not have computer/ internet access please contact your child’s Year Leader immediately, and we will do our best to support you.
  • If you have any difficulty accessing these or logging on, please email ICT support: TCSNDICTSupport@charternorthdulwich.org.uk
