Student View Google Classroom - Basic Intro

Google Classroom is a collaboration tool for teachers and pupils. Your teacher will create an online classroom and invite your child to the class or sent a code out via School. As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school –we will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password - they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device. This video is basic introduction to the Student's View of Google Classroom.



Please help us and your child by ensuring their attendance remains above 95%, allowing them to achieve their potential.


                       Attendance Matters

Raise Your Childs Attendance, Raise their Chances! 


Ways for parents to encourage attendance:

Find out regularly your child's absence. (Ask for half days if easier) and check this matches with your own record.

Talk regularly with your child about school and how they feel about it. More likely to attend if they feel supported and anxieties listened to

Phone us as soon as possible to tell us why your child is absent, and when you expect them to return. Putting the school number in your phone can save you time. Know the school routine for alerting you to absence.

Only grant days at home for genuine illness. (you will know!!)

Avoid taking holidays in school time.

Know routines of the school day to avoid issues, e.g. have they got their PE kit?
