Desk phones will be removed before the start of school 2023

Receiving a call
All staff can receive calls using MS Teams. Teams doesn’t have to be open on your screen to receive calls. Teams remains open in the background on your computer. When you receive a call, you will see a popup box appear in the corner of your screen. If you have a ring tone enable, then you will also hear the call ringing.
Staff also have a Direct Dial number (DDI). External callers can reach you on that number. These calls will come directly through to your Teams app. You can find your DDI number by going to Teams -> Calls and you will see your number there
Search for the 'Operator' in the Teams app.
Calling the Nurse
Search for 'Nurse' in the directory. You can also call the nurse by dialling 520 8288
