Forgotten password or username

All Schools in Buckinghamshire have been set up with an account. Each school account will have up to four user accounts assigned, and the main account holder administrator is responsible for distributing details to whom they wish. Please note that we do still require authorisation from the school Headteacher to reset passwords, as the redistribution of the login details is the responsibility of the account holder administrator.

User accounts and access

Access to some zones will depend on the user account you are logged into and if your school purchases annual services.

Account and access matrix

bursar@ - This account is intended for your school's business manager or bursar who will have authority to purchase products and services on behalf of the school. Only one person should have access to this at a time so you can track who authorised a purchase. This account will also have access to pupil data in the School management zone, Payroll forms, and financial documents in the finance zone, provided you buy into these services or are a maintained school. This account can update and view school emergency contact details and report a school closure. We will only reset this password by a verified person in the school and with the headteacher's approval. This account will have access to everything that the SMT account, all staff, and governor accounts.

It will have access to non-statutory information provided your school purchases the annual package.

Troubleshooter

Q: What is the bursar account used for?

Answer: The bursar account is the only account which has access to purchase annual and pay-as-used packages on the shop. Logins to the Traded Services website will work in SchoolsWeb too and visa versa.

​​Q: Why Do I need to have the Headteacher's approval to reset my password?

Answer: smt@, allstaff@, governors@ accounts require the head teacher's authorization to reset passwords because these accounts are used by other staff members in your school. Therefore, the New password needs to be sent out to other users. We do not have contact details for these staff members and every school may have different ways of communicating to their staff members. This precaution is also to ensure that we do not distribute passwords to any unauthorised persons.

Q: Can my headteacher delegate responsibility?

Answer: Your Headteacher can delegate the responsibility of distributing the account login details within the school, however, we would still require the Headteacher's authorisation to reset the password. This precaution is also to ensure that we do not distribute passwords to any unauthorised persons.

Q: Why is the there Zone 'greyed out'?

Answer: You are either logged into the wrong account or might need to log in to an alternative. Please refer to the matrix table above.

Or your school may not purchase the annual package associated with that Zone. Please ask your school Business manager or bursar to confirm.

Q: My school does buy into the annual services but the area is still 'greyed' out?

Answer: You are either logged into the wrong account or might need to log in to an alternative. For example, you will not be able to access the Finance Zone unless you are logged in as the bursar or SMT account. Please refer to the matrix table above.

Q: I have a personal account for the Bulletin, but there are still areas I cannot view in SchoolsWeb.
