We are now very happy to announce that, as part of our school family, you are invited to access RightNow Media and receive a free account to their exciting new online video library. This extensive media resource is made available for your unlimited personal use, again, at absolutely no cost to you. Please log in to your parent account in Encom, the school computer system, choose “Curriculum Resources”, and scroll down to find the RightNow Media invitation to set up your account.

You will need to be connected to wi-fi to view these videos, as they will be streaming. You cannot download them unless there is a “download” link shown.
Just for Kids
Here is more information on the “Just for Kids” resources available on RightNow Media:
- If there is a RightNow Media icon beside the name of the production, it has been developed ‘in house’.
- Below the screen will be an icon for “Connect to TV or projector’. This gives a video explanation or tutorial to show how to display on TV or projector.
- “Download” or “View” indicates a free download. There may also be the offer of purchase-able material with a “Buy Now” link.
- When in the children’s site, at the top right is a link to “Exit Kids Area”. i.e. kids can’t get out of the kids’ section without using that link. iPhones, etc. have a lock which only allows kids to stay in the kids’ site.
- There are options for free download of colouring pages, flash cards.
- E.g. “Henry the Hand Puppet” has a free teaching pack with a 40-page download and the option to purchase a DVD.
- E.g. “Torchlighters” offers a free leaders’ guide and handouts.
- E.g. “What’s in the Bible” has a “view” button showing free helps available.
