We are delighted to announce the launch of an Early Years login page that helps pupils in Year 6 and below to access USO-authenticated learning resources via a simplified process using a PIN in place of the password that older students require.
Once Early Years login is enabled for the school, younger pupils can access myUSO by going to http://easy.uso.im and entering their USO username, followed by their PIN code.
The PIN can be entered directly using a keyboard, or by clicking on a sequence of numbers associated with child-friendly animal graphics. This will grant access to an ‘Early Years’ view of the myUSO website where the pupil will find links to a relevant set of learning resources that can be further categorised by school staff to best suit the needs of each school or group of users.
The ability for a school to use Early Years login is simply enabled by a Head Teacher accepting a declaration found in the USO support site, and relies on MIS data being provided via USO-AutoUpdate. For full details on activating and using this feature please see the User Guide.
