Password requirements and tips
Student passwords must be a minimum of 8 characters long.
It can't be a password you've used before and it cannot contain words such as "archway", your username, or your first or last names. There are additional checks that take place against known weak passwords, so if you're still struggling to set a new one, try something completely different.
Tip 1: Come up with an easy to remember phrase rather than a word, for example: "mydogisacollieandhisnameisfido" it's very long, however it's easy to remember. You can add further complexity and strength by Capitalising some letters, or swapping some letters for number, for example: "MydogisacollieandhisnameisFido" and "MydogisacollieandhisnameisF1d0"
Tip 2: Check your passwords on https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords to ensure your password isn't on a known list of weak passwords.
Tip 3: Check your password strength at https://www.security.org/how-secure-is-my-password/ to get an idea of how hard it would be for someone to crack your password.
Tip 4: For more advanced password management use a password manager app and generate strong unique passwords for each account you have. Edge/Chrome have built in password generators, and you can save passwords into Edge and Chrome if you sign in with your Microsoft or Google accounts, or you can use a third-party tool such as Lastpass, Bitwarden or KeePass. There are browser extensions and phone apps for these tools too.
Your student account is limited to a quota of £5 in printing credits per month. You can see your balance, what it costs to print in colour and mono, and see your recently printed documents by logging in here (in school only): Papercut User Login
If you're on the school Wi-Fi you can use also use the above link to print to certain web print enabled printers from your personal phone or tablet.
If you run out of print credits you can request more via the IT support desk.
Office 365 is the name that encompasses everything from Microsoft Office online, such as your school email in Outlook, and OneDrive which is a storage area personal to you.
Students can use Office 365 to install Microsoft Office for free on up to 5 home devices by going to the Office 365 link above and using the "Install Office" link in the top right of the Office 365 portal.
The Microsoft Office apps can be installed on a phone for free from the Android and iOS app stores. You can also use Office directly within the web browser by using the Word, PowerPoint, Excel links in the Office 365 portal.
To login to Office 365 you use your school email and password, your school email is your username followed by @archwayschool.net.
If you have problems logging in to Show My Homework, follow these steps:
1. Ensure you're clicking on the "Login with Microsoft Office 365" button, rather than using the login form. You should then be asked for your school email followed by your school password.
If you're logging in from outside of school you may then be asked for your second factor authentication method (App authenticator code, or SMS message code).
If you're logging in from a school device or on the school Wi-Fi, the second factor authentication won't be requested.
2. If you have a home Microsoft/Outlook/Live/Hotmail account you may have problems logging in via the office 365 link due to cached/stored details of your personal account on your device.
Steps to resolve this depend on the device and web browser you're using, you'll need to browse using a guest or InPrivate/Incognito window, some examples of where to find this below:
- In Google Chrome go to the top right, click on the coloured circle and choose to open a new Guest window.
- In Edge go to the top right settings menu and open a new InPrivate window.
- In Safari open a new tab and select Private tab.
Important note: The login process will fail when using Internet Explorer. We do not recommend using Internet Explorer for any schoolwork.
3. To be able to submit work the student has to be logged in, not the parent. Parents can only read their students homework page; no comments or submissions are possible without logging in as the student.
Use the Home Access link above to login to Foldr with your school details. Here you can access your H drive (home folder) and T drive (Teaching resources) files. You can upload and download files, as well as edit them directly in Office 365. You will also be able to see your OneDrive account within Foldr.
