How to set up easier access to the Student Online Portal

Tuesday, January 5, 2021 by Rebecca Burgess | Uncategorized

My online portal should be something that parents, and particularly students, are accessing regularly throughout the week. In order to make this easier for you I recommend creating a shortcut on your phone or tablet by adding a Home Screen button - this is particularly useful for students using their phones to play backing tracks during lessons. In addition, it is worth setting up a bookmark for the portal on a laptop, I find this easiest by having a Bookmark Bar with the bookmarks for sites I regularly visit. If you're not sure how to do any of these things then below are some instructions to help you get set up. If you can't remember how to get to the portal login page you can access it here:

I hope these Cheat Sheets are helpful and provide clear instructions. Please let me know if you have any problems!
