Google Classroom Launch
21st January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers
Re: Google Classroom launch
First of all a massive thank you for all of your support with our on-line learning – we know it must be extremely difficult to juggle things and continue to encourage and support your children with their work. The school website was not originally intended to hold all the content it currently does (just homework originally) and is under very heavy load – so, from Monday 25th January, we will be moving all the on-line work to Google Classroom.
Over the next 2 days you will receive a unique password for you child/ren and step by step instructions on how to join Google Classroom and access the work will be uploaded to the school website.
It will be easier to see all the work in different formats and staff will be able to electronically mark and return it. As it is on a Google platform, it will be accessible from more devices including X-box and PlayStation.
The class email service to your child’s teacher will continue and they will be able to help you with the new platform. Could I just ask that you bear with us during the week as we ourselves get used to this and it may take a little longer than usual for us to get back to you.
Walsall College are offering a short course ‘How to support your child to use Google Classroom’. The course is free of charge, to enrol visit the following link - http://www.walsallcollege.ac.uk/short-course-enrolment
If you would still prefer paper copies of work please email your class teacher or contact the school office.
If you are having difficulty with accessing a device and are in receipt of Free School Meals, please contact us as we may be able to loan you a laptop from our final DfE allocation that should arrive this week.
Thank you again for your continuing support.
Ms K J Baker
