This , the most important message we can share is talk to someone you trust if you’re struggling. You don’t have to go through this alone - and there is no shame in accepting help. Let someone support you. Things can get better.

Virtual Learning Resources

HCACP is fully open from September 2020. However, we will keep the Virtual Learning section of our website up-to-date in case some students need to return to studying from home for a while.

Parents, if you or your child are struggling with accessing resources please email info@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk and we will get back to you asap. This will then be forwarded to the teacher who will respond to you as soon as possible. Thank you.


Microsoft Teams

Any virtual lessons will take place using Microsoft Teams. Full details of how to access Microsoft Teams can be found in our student guide to working from home (see below).

Download our student guide to working from home

When students login they will find classes, subjects and year groups are already allocated in MS Teams. Students should sign into Microsoft Teams at least five minutes before the live lesson starts and can join by clicking the link sent to their team by their teachers. 

In addition to lessons, other work such as assignments and quizzes will also now be set through Microsoft Teams. However, teachers will continue to set work via Show My Homework too.

Students all have Show My Homework logins, but if there are any issues please email CheungK@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk and we will reset passwords. Here's a short guide to submitting work on Show My Homework. Years 7-10 also have access to Bedrock Vocabulary from home.


Managing your time

Should any child be unable to attend school for a period, we recommend creating a schedule for your son or daughter to follow. Having a structure that they can follow each day will help them stay focused on their education and provide structure for you and your household.

However, we are very aware that this may not work for every household or for students of different ages. Creating a bespoke schedule together with your child can be a great tool to motivate, empower and focus them. It also allows you to plan in any activities that are specific to your household, such as looking after younger siblings, exercise, helping prepare food and much-needed family time.

Please be realistic with your planning, and plan what works best for you and your family whilst giving your son or daughter the best opportunity to continue their education.


Safeguarding

For safeguarding reasons, teachers are not permitted to give out their telephone numbers but pupils will be able to email into the school, and the school switchboard will continue to be operational.

If during a temporary closure of the school you or your child need to reach us, our telephone number is 020 7622 0026 and our email address is info@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk.

The most urgent enquiries, including safeguarding issues for any vulnerable pupils, will be answered first. If your enquiry is not urgent, please bear with us if there is a delay in responding.
