What Will Student Access Provide?

For students, there will be access to all uploaded course materials, cocurricular, community and services sites, and so on. To find class materials, students may go to the year level site (Junior School) or department/course site (Secondary School). As this system is continually improved, we are providing basic access to materials and information.

You will see no personalised information about you e.g. timetables, grades, and so on.

We are offering our teachers flexibility in operating in this new system. Some teachers may elect to work from a different platform or application that is better suited to the needs of their class, for example Edmodo or Evernote. In this case, all core course material (unit outlines, assessment tasks, notes home); will be available on the department or year level sites.

About Radford Online

Radford Online is the College's Intranet for the purposes of communicating information and resources to staff, students, parents and caregivers. It is password protected for approved College users.
Radford Online is based around SharePoint and is part of the Microsoft 365 cloud hosted solution. It has been created on site, to meet Radford’s style and needs.

It will take time to achieve our goals as the community creates and learns to use this new system and we thank you in advance for your patience and support. New features may be designed and released at later stages as the system is used and reviewed. Our teaching staff are being trained to use Radford Online in addition to maintaining their high standards of teaching.
