Google Classroom


As a school, following the Government's guidance, in EYFS, KS1 and KS2, we have elected to use Google Classroom as our main platform for providing remote education. In using this platform, we are able to upload teaching slides, resources, instructions and copies of live, taught lessons (live lessons are taught via zoom) as well as other supporting videos such as those provided by Oak National Academy. 

Google Classroom is an easy to use learning platform developed by Google for teachers and students to connect to their class teachers and keep up with their learning.

Whilst the school is closed due to the covid-19 outbreak, teachers will set activities on Google Classroom to support you child’s continue to learn at home. Teachers will be checking in on the learning each day and updating activities regularly, so keep an eye out for new activities and for the dates that the tasks are due to be completed by.
