A single login to all your LGfL services is now included in the cost of your broadband. The LGfL USO will enable you to access your email, MLE, content and a range of other services with the same username and password. In the future, all access to LGfL services will only be via the LGfL USO.

HOW DO I GET MY LGfL USO?

There are 3 simple steps:

  1. Check who your nominated contact is
  2. Request your USO login from them
  3. Await your username and password

The USO is a fully authenticated and secure login, only given to staff and pupils by nominated users. If you are the nominated user of a school or LA and want to know more, see our guides below.

How to install Auto-Update in SIMS, Pearson E1 and RM Integris G2 can be found in the support site help section at www.support.lgfl.net

If you are having any problems with your USO, please contact your nominated contact who can then contact the LGfL support desk. Www.support.lgfl.net—020 82 55 55 55 (option 3)

The range of resources accessible through the London Grid for Learning and National Education Network is continually growing, as new collections of educational content are added, and major new facilities such as the London MLE (powered by Fronter), StaffMail and LondonMail are deployed.

Many LGfL resources require password-authenticated access, whether to track the academic progress of students, store user preferences, or control and monitor service usage. Naturally, users would much rather have a single username and password which grants access to all resources instead of separate credentials for each service, and this is the aim of Unified Sign-On (USO).
