Latest updates and news from your Learning Resource consultants, every month.
Hello <<First Name>>,
We hope that you all had a restful half term and are looking forward to the Summer term ahead. Although it is the final half term of the academic year we know that it is always a busy one for school with exams, productions and sports days to look forward to.
Many thanks to all those who attended one of our four conferences last term, if you were not able to get out of school then all the videos from the Safeguarding, Technical, Curriculum and Wellbeing conferences are now available to view here.
Updating USO Security Information
We have created some guidance on how to self-service USO passwords resets and how to update security information so that staff at your school(s) can reset their own passwords without the need for technical support from nominated contacts. Please would you share the link below with staff at your school(s) and encourage them to set their security information if they have not done so already.
The guidance is available on this link and there are sections for both staff and nominated contacts – https://password.lgfl.net.

Reading Zone Live
Our next Reading Zone Live event is on the 12th June at 2:30 pm featuring the author Christopher Edge. We want as many schools as possible to experience the ReadingZone Live programme in a live, interactive way. We do not want technology to be a barrier to participation. Therefore, we have configured the technology to be open to all schools. It is no longer necessary to have dedicated Video Conferencing equipment. For more detailed guidance please read this updated information.
