Google Classroom

Your child will be bringing home a copy of the letter below this evening.  It will contain their login details, which must be kept safe.

Dear Parents,

In preparation for any closures, the school has set-up Google Classroom accounts for each of our pupils.

What is Google Classroom?
Google Classroom is a secure learning network for teachers and pupils.  It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content and access work that has been completed at home.

How does Google Classroom work?
The Google Classroom platform enables teachers to post learning material online, including short teaching inputs and work for your child to complete.  Your child can complete work online, or upload a photo of their work, which teachers will then mark and provide feedback.

How will my child access Google Classroom?
Your child can access their Google Classroom account on either a laptop computer or a tablet or a smartphone.  On the school website there are guides to help you access the platform on these different devices.

In order to login, your child will need to use the following details:
Email address:  ?????????
Password:  ????????

They must not share their personal login details with other children.

When will Google Classroom be used?
Google Classroom will be used if the school, or a year group bubble closes.  Therefore, it is important for everyone to feel confident with the system. Your child’s class teacher will provide opportunities for the children to practise.

What should I do if I am experiencing difficulties with Google Classroom?
If you have difficulties with Google Classroom, please send an email to either neil.gunstone@wellington.bradford.sch.uk or catherine.berry@wellington.bradford.sch.uk to request help.
Kind regards

Neil Gunstone
Deputy Headteacher
