You may have heard the word ‘Connect’ mentioned over the past few months. This page offers a quick guide to help you get started with Connect.
What is Connect?
Connect is our digital learning environment. This is a secure web-based platform that contains information and documents aimed specifically at students, parents, teachers and governors of Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst.
What content is on Connect?
Connect is organised into different areas for ‘Staff’, ‘Students’, ‘Subjects’, ‘Post-16’, ‘Parents’ and ‘Governors’. When you log in you will see areas applicable to you.
One of the most useful areas are the individual year group pages (under the ‘Student’ menu). These contain specific information relevant to that year, i.e. the Year 7 page may have support and advice, whilst the Year 11 page may have revision techniques and exam timetables.
One area we are currently developing is homework, with the aim of making it easier to keep on track and check what has been set.
How do I access Connect?
To log in to Connect, go to connect.ctckingshurst.academy where you will be asked to enter your username and password (this is your Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst username and password). If you are a parent, you will have been supplied with a general username and password for the year group of your child.
Does Connect work on mobiles?
Although Connect does work on mobile devices, we would recommend using a desktop computer or laptop for full functionality. Connect does work on tablets, however we would recommend using the Chrome browser app rather than Safari as you will not be able to open Office documents in Safari.
Please be aware that some content is not available and will therefore not be displayed on mobile devices.
