Google Classroom

At Whybridge Junior School we are committed to ensuring the very best outcomes for our children. 

The Department for Education (DfE) expects all schools to have a contingency plan in place to provide education remotely. If there is a local lockdown and the school has to close for most pupils, or if a pupil or a group of pupils are required to self-isolate, remote learning arrangements will come into place. The DfE’s expectation is that remote learning is a well-planned and sequenced curriculum that enables pupils to build their knowledge and skills and make progress academically. To do this we will be using Google Classroom. 

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.

Each child has a Google Classroom log in, which takes them into their virtual classroom. Daily lessons can be accessed through the virtual classroom and all pupils who are isolating at home are expected to complete the lessons for each school day.  Class teachers monitor pupils' engagement with these lessons and provide feedback in the same way they would if the child was at school.
