In light of the current situation, it is a requirement that all schools provide children with a platform for learning at home in the event that they are sent home due to an incident of COVID-19. As an Academy Trust, we have opted to use Google Classroom as our home learning platform.
Google Classroom acts as a virtual classroom where teachers upload learning materials (including slideshows, videos and other documents) and set work for children to complete at home. It also allows teachers to provide vital feedback on work to extend children’s learning.
All children in school have been set up with login credentials for Google Classroom, including an email address and a password.
We will make use of Google Classroom in school so that children may complete work set for them by their class teacher. This means that, in the event of any closure, children will be familiar with how Google Classroom works and our high standard of education can continue to be provided.
