OneNote Guidance for Parents/Carers



What is OneNote?

Microsoft OneNote is a program that allows teachers to upload learning to an online class notebook which pupils can view and use to complete tasks.

The school will be using OneNote to provide the best possible quality teaching and learning for the children remotely.

This program can be used on a browser (such as Firefox or Google Chrome) without the need to download anything. There is also an app version that can be downloaded too.

Pupils will be shown how to use OneNote at school. However, clear guidance is placed on our school website under the purple Pupil tab on the drop-down menu titled OneNote Class Notebooks for parents/carers to use.


When will my child’s work be marked?


If your child is self-isolating because a member of their household has COVID-19 symptoms, is waiting to be tested or has a confirmed case of COVID-19 and the rest of the class is in school as normal, your child’s work will be marked at the end of the school day.

Bubble Isolation

If a whole class is isolating due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 within their class bubble, teachers will be able to work remotely online ‘alongside’ their pupils during school hours and ‘live-mark’ their work, giving feedback and supporting their learning.

While we aim to ‘live-mark’ children’s work, we understand that there may be occasions when pupils will be unable to log on during school hours if they are sharing devices between siblings or parents/carers are working from home. If your child is working outside of normal school hours, the teacher will ensure that the completed work is marked within 48 hours.



If you need any support with any aspect of online learning, we are here to support you! Please e-mail your child’s class teacher (if school is in session) or ring the school office (01843 841046) and the teacher will e-mail you, ring you back or find the best person to support you.


Your child’s class teacher e-mail address is on their OneNote login card.
