Dear Parent/Guardian 

As you know, we are continuously evaluating ways to raise the achievements of our pupils. Iím pleased to tell you that the school has recently subscribed to two web sites which your child now has unlimited access to: 

1. SAM Learning 

A top quality eLearning service that has been proven to improve examination results through examination practice and related revision. 

To access the service at pupils need three details: 

Centre ID



Date of birth followed by two initials; first name then last name

Example: 010885DJ is the User ID for David Jones born 1st August, 1985


Initially the same as the User ID but pupils are encouraged to change this to something difficult to guess or work out the first time they use the service


2. Learn Premium 

Learnpremium offers almost complete coverage of the core curriculum through a huge range of lessons, interactive resources, activities, worksheets and tests delivered in one handy website. Unfortunately, there are no Music resources available but almost every other subject is present, including some we donít do at Madeley High School such as Spanish! 

To access the web site at pupils need their log-in details. "To access learnpremium please ask a member of teaching staff for your login details".

Once pupils have entered these details they can tick an ďAuto LoginĒ box so that they donít have to enter them again on their computer.

One of the key features of these two websites is that they can be accessed from virtually any computer with internet access Ė and other schools who use them report significant usage outside the school day.  

If you have a computer with internet access at home, I hope you will allow it to be used to access these services, but if that is not possible, we will be making arrangements for access to ICT facilities in school outside timetabled hours so that no-one is at a disadvantage. Of course, it is also possible for pupils to use them from computers in other places such as libraries and community centres. 

I realise you may have concerns about youngsters using the internet, and may wish to establish your own family rules about where and when this is to be done. 

All our pupils will be told how the services work over the next few weeks in special assemblies and lessons, and everyone should have a sticker showing their Sam Learning log in details in their Planner. You may also want to ask your child to show you these websites, particularly the area in Sam Learning that reports on their progress and shows their marks! 

It is hoped to provide an opportunity for you to have a look at both Sam Learning and Learn Premium at Parents Evenings during the year. In the meantime, if you have any questions about either of them please feel free to contact Mr Surtees at school. 

We do hope that you will take full advantage of these services. We think they will be very beneficial to us all.  

Thanks for your support. 

Yours sincerely 

Mr E Wilkes
