We have now set up Google Classroom for all of you to use at home for all your subjects. Your teachers will start sending and setting your work through Google Classroom and by next week, all your work will be sent through it rather than by email.
It has several benefits for you:
- You only have to look in one place for your work
- You can communicate directly with each of your teachers
- Your teacher can mark and return the work you complete with help and advice
- Your teacher can share resources, set up quizzes and tasks for you
- It gives you access to Google’s versions of Word (Google Docs), Powerpoint (Google Slides) and Excel (Google Sheets)…all for free!
What you need to do
- Look at your school email account
- Find the email sent this morning that gives you your password to Google Classroom
- Your username for Google Classroom will be your normal school email address
- Login to Google Classroom at: https://classroom.google.com/
- Accept the invites from your teachers to join your lessons
- Look in the ‘Classwork’ section on Google Classroom which will show you any work you have been set
Here is a short video that shows you the basics of how to log in, join classes and see what work you have been given.
If you have any issues with your login then please let us know and we will get you the help you need.
Also, here’s a brilliant step-by-step video from Ms Torkington to help you log on to Google Classroom, get started with accessing the lessons and tasks set for you and show you how to submit your completed work:

I know it all feels very strange being out of school and away from your friends for so long and I hope you are all feeling positive and looking after yourselves. If you are finding things difficult, we are still here to help. You can still phone the numbers we shared with you before school closed or you can get in touch with us through email, telephone and social media.
I hope you find Google Classroom helpful, if you are finding it difficult to get online with it please let us know.
