Please access the following learning provisions on our remote learning platform ‘Google Classroom’.

  • Spellings
  • Home-learning Menus
  • Any other online resource or task set previously by the teacher

Long-term School Closure Protocol:

If the school is closed for more than 48 hours, and during extended periods of school closure, children can continue their learning by completing work set by their class teachers on our remote learning platform, ‘Google Classrooms’.

Access to remote learning:

Google Classroom is an online platform for teachers to set work and communicate with their classes. Teachers have spent time teaching their classes how to use the platform, so that they are familiar with it. To support parents, we have also put together the following guides to using Google Classroom below. If you need further support when using Google Classrooms, please email your child’s class teacher and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

We understand not all children have printers at home. Children can copy the questions and write their answers on a piece of paper if they choose. Photographs of work can be uploaded to Google Classroom for teacher feedback.

We also understand that different circumstances allow for different levels of access to the internet and electronic devices. Our remote learning platform ‘Google Classroom’ can be accessed on a variety of tablets, smartphones, laptops, Chromebooks or desktop computers. Please liaise with your child’s class teacher if you are having difficulty accessing your child’s remote learning. We have also attached a useful guide below, which explains how to access the internet on Xbox and Playstation gaming consoles:

We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.
