Frequently Asked Questions

At Class of Hyde we strive for an open communication line with our education establishments subscribed to Class of Hyde. If any of your questions are not answered below, or you would like to talk to Class of Hyde directly please contact admin@classofhyde.com or call us 0121 517 033.

We refer to PSHE (Personal Social Health Education) as PSE/PSD (Personal Social Education/ Personal Social Development) at our school, is the subscription applicable?

Yes, we have chosen to refer to it as PSHE, as that is what it was referred to during our education, but we recognise it is often referred to as PSE and PSD, and the subscription is applicable to all of the above mentioned.

 

Are the subscriptions constrained to the subjects being taught?

The subscriptions can be used throughout the school. In particular with the PSHE subscription, we feel that although it is specific to the subject, it could be a great tool to use in assemblies, ‘form’ or ‘tutor time’, and career advice sessions.

 

What content do you produce during the school holidays?

It is really important to Class of Hyde that we still deliver a valuable service during the school holidays, and that is why we are planning to produce content during the school holidays specifically tailored for teachers.  However at Class of Hyde we are always learning too, so we would welcome any conversations about content subscribers would like to see over the holidays.

 

I have/ teach students who have impaired hearing, what options are available?

We are currently in the process of subtitling all of our videos, however in the meantime, please contact us directly and we will endeavour to accommodate any requests as soon as possible to ensure that any subscribing schools can provide access to all of their students.

 

I have noticed a mistake within the content, can I raise this?

At Class of Hyde we are on the very beginning of our journey, (visit our About Page to find out more), so currently we are a small team. Although we strive to create error-free content, if you identify any mistakes or have any challenges to the content created by Class of Hyde we welcome the opportunity to work with you to ensure that we create the highest quality content we possibly can. Class of Hyde would like to thank you for identifying areas we could improve, and hope we can work side by side with the education sector, as we are always learning too.

Will my subscriptions automatically renew if I do not cancel them?

Are the licenses for the entire school?

The license is designed to be used in the classroom. However, all staff within one educational establishment may use the login. Breaches of our agreement terms and conditions (for example sharing login details between schools), will result in subscriptions being cancelled.

AQA, OCR, WJEC, and Pearson, exam boards however, we do not directly work with any of the exam boards at this current time, and make no claims to improve the grades of students. We are here to support and bring advice directly from industry to those in education.
