Remote Learning and Google Classroom: Advice for Parents
- National restrictions are in place and the school is required to close;
- Local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home;
- Class or Year Group bubbles have to self-isolate; or
- Your child has to individually self-isolate.
How will the school deliver remote teaching and learning?
Your child’s class teacher will use Google Classroom to teach your child remotely. They will also use Zoom to communicate with the class. We may receive very short notice of a bubble closure so class teachers will do their very best to get everything ready to teach your child remotely from the next school day. However, this may not always be possible straight away. We really do appreciate parents’ patience and understanding with this.
What help is available?
Many of us are on a steep learning curve. The children have been shown how to access Google Classroom and they should also have details of their passwords. You may find that they are able to log in without very little assistance from you.
You are welcome to telephone the school if you need help with finding passwords or you come across a problem that you do not know how to resolve. You can also use our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You will also find a range of guides below that have been put together by the school to support you.
