How to access remote learning
All students will access their home learning through Google Classroom (classroom.google.com) using their school email address and password. Each student will have their log-in details written in the front of their Knowledge organiser.
If students are completing work on their smartphones, they may want to download the Google Classroom app.
How do I know what lessons to do and when?
Each year group will have a separate timetable which will be uploaded into their Google Classroom. Links to the website and information will be included within this document so that it is easily accessible and clear to follow.
Help with remote learning
Throughout each lesson, a specialist teacher will be on Google Classroom to help with any questions a student may have. There is an option to send an individual message to the teacher within Google Classroom, and pupils are encouraged to use this feature if they are struggling to understand certain aspects of the lesson.
I do not have a smart device or something to access the lessons with
You can access the lessons on a phone, tablet or on a computer. If you do not have a device, or enough devices for each child, please contact Mrs Victoria Pearce firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to look into providing these for you.
What do I do if my child cannot access Google Classroom?
On the rare occasion that a student has forgotten or cannot find their log-in details, they should e-mail Head of Year or email@example.com who will be able to help.
Google Classroom is empty?
If you have issues accessing your School Google account it may be because you are already logged in with another Google account. You can use this page to switch accounts: https://accounts.google.com/AccountChooser
