Google Classroom

  • Google Classroom is an exciting, new safe and secure learning platform with curriculum resources for your child to access during the school closure.
  • It has been designed to support pupils having access to increased online learning materials and to enable communication directly with teachers. 
  • Your child will be able to access work that has been assigned by their teacher and complete the work using documents that can be created, edited and stored online.  
  • Your child’s class teacher will then be able to give feedback and support your child accordingly in their learning.
  • Every child has a unique school login account (This is not an email account).
  • If you need to request details for your child's account or you have any technical issues using Google Classroom, please email:
