Using IT for learning at CNS
At CNS students use a range of IT to support their learning. This includes:
- CNS Cloud – This page acts as a hub for students to access their email, their online files via OneDrive, and other useful resources.
- ShowMyHomework/ Satchel:One – This provides students with an online homework calendar that is accessible for parents. For guidance on how to use this, click here https://www.cns-school.org/Parents/Homework/
- Go4Schools – This provides students and parents with progress and behaviour information.
This guide outlines how to access these services and explains how to get your password reset if needed: https://www.cns-school.org/docs/General/Home_Guide_for_Students.pdf
