Online learning

Digital technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people, both within schools and outside school. These technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning.


Access to Resources


At Alperton we have a policy of allowing ALL students access to ALL learning resources.

This means that, for example, a Year 8 student can see what Year 9 students are learning – perhaps to stretch and challenge themselves. In the same way, students can look back to revise and refresh their understanding of topic they competed in a previous year.

The purpose of this is to encourage students to be inquisitive and explore online learning materials to expand and deepen understanding of a topic or subject.

Computer Network


We have made many of the services accessible by using your school e-mail address as the username and some are using your USO (universal single sign on) this is the username that ends in .304.

Your e-mail address is:

USO@lgflmail.net
e.g. smitj001.304@lgflmail.net

Your USO username will be like the following:

smitj001.304

Some of the online services will send you an e-mail to confirm your address and have a link to set your own password. If you forget your password and cannot see how to reset your password on the website then please e-mail ICT Support (ictsupport@alperton.brent.sch.uk).
