Digital SBS (IT Support)
At St Birinus School, we aim to support the appropriate and effective use of digital technology within education to give all students the opportunity to improve and develop their digital skills.
As SBS in an Office 365 school, your son will have access to an Office 365 school email. Once logged into his school email, they will be able to access further Office 365 applications, including OneDrive – which will then allow your son to access his work from home. Teachers also make use of Microsoft Teams, which is an online platform to centralise communication and resources for their classes.
