Makeover of the myUSO website

We are excited to announce the introduction of a fully re-designed and re-built myUSO website. All the functions and features you have come to rely on are still there, with a few enhancements and a more elegant, modern design that makes it well suited for use on mobile devices as well as desktop computers.  The main changes are in how the features are accessed and the structure of the site itself.

The site now has a more defined structure, with a clear Home page, for presenting relevant information at the point of login. New features for being able to control and customise your Home page will be introduced in the coming months. This redesign will enable a range of future development and allow the introduction of great new features which will make it an indispensable tool for both staff and pupils.

One of the biggest changes has been to the site management, with a dedicated Settings section that controls different areas of the school’s myUSO configuration. To alter any of the myUSO functions, please check the Settings sections for the relevant controls.

When visiting myUSO, everyone will be presented with a popup message offering to take you to the new site. If you choose to go to the new site, you will automatically be taken there each time you log in. If you choose not to use the new site fully just yet, you will have a few weeks to get used to it as the old site will continue to be operational until Easter, at which point it will be retired, leaving only the new-look site.

Please be aware that for the time being, pupils using any of the Easy Login methods will be taken to the old site. This will allow their teachers to know what to expect in the classroom environment and to become fully familiar with the new site themselves before introducing it to their pupils. However, by the start of March, pupils using the Easy Login option via the new site, will be able to access that site rather than be redirected to the old one.

The site will continue to evolve and develop in the coming months and we look forward to your feedback and suggestions.
