Step 3 - set up two-factor authentication with your usual authenticator app.

Use your usual authenticator app (such as Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator) on your phone to scan the QR code presented on screen in the Secure Schools Platform.

Your authenticator app will generate a 6-digit number that changes at a regular interval. This is called your One time password and you will need the latest version of this every time you log on. Type in this number and click Confirm Enable.
