Google Classroom is an educational tool, which will be used strictly for educational purposes. Each class has a page, which includes work for pupils to complete at home, links to helpful websites and educational videos to enhance our provision. It also provides a platform for pupils to keep in touch with their teacher during the scheduled lessons, which is so important whilst children are working remotely.
All of the children at Richard Crosse have been set up with a Google account. The login credentials for your child have been sent to the parents email address that we have on file. If you have problems accessing the Gmail account please contact the school office: firstname.lastname@example.org
We understand that using such programs can be tricky, so please view the support videos and documents below:

If the need arises for children to access remote education, we have put a number of processes in place to ensure minimum disruption.
The first day or two of being educated remotely may look different from our approach in school, while we take all necessary actions to change our planning to accommodate. We may send workbooks home to be completed independently, or put up links and instructions on Google Classroom for pupils to follow.
After the initial phase, we expect to teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we will need to make some adaptations in some subjects, such as Science or Art. Where possible we will send resources home (i.e. charcoal etc.)
Further information about our remote education offering can be found in our policy here.
