Home Learning Information- Parents
It is expected that students are working on activities set by their teachers during the day. We will follow the same timetable a student would follow in school.
To make it easy to access, all resources will use your child's school email address and password.
It is in the following format:
Their password is the password they use to login to the school computers.
Year 7 - 11
Students will use Google Classroom which allows students to receive work, as well as interact with their class teacher and also submit work for review and feedback.
As a parent you may receive a daily digest about your child's work, including upcoming deadlines, missing work, announcements about assignments, messages and questions posted by teachers.
You can choose the frequency of the emails, such as daily or weekly. You can unsubscribe or remove yourself from Classroom at any time.
Google Classroom works on a computer, laptop, tablet and a phone. The app will also allow students to upload work on paper by taking photos of their work.
To reduce screen time during the day, we would encourage students to take appropriate breaks away from a screen.
Help videos for students will be located on our page dedicated to using Google Classroom.
Teachers will do their best to begin each timetabled lesson with a video conference. Students can check which conferences they have been invited to by viewing the Stream on Google Classroom. This will have up to date information regarding any activity for each lesson.
It is expected that students mute their microphones and cameras for live lessons, and only use the chat function to ask questions. Usual expectations of behaviour and etiquette apply.
Year 12 - 13
Lesson resources will be available on Canvas to match a student's timetable.
Teachers will do their best to begin each timetabled lesson with a video conference. Students can check which conferences they have been invited to by visiting meet.google.com and logging in with their school email address and password.
We realise that you may have a number of children at home during these exceptional times, and therefore access to a device may be difficult.
Google Classroom and Meets are both available for mobile phones and tablets which reduces the need for desktop or laptop computers to access lessons.
Where a student has no access to IT equipment, we would encourage you to use your own mobile device to get information about the tasks set and pass these on to your children.
Please let your chapter team know if your child is having trouble completing work due to not having access to IT equipment.
