Here at Chiltern Academy we have devised a plan to equip our pupils with online access to the curriculum to enable them to continue their learning journey.
We use the platform 'Google Classroom', below are some videos to help your child get set up.
Student View Google Classroom
Protocols for Home Learning
- Work will be set on the Google Classroom for your year group. You will find each subject area under the classwork tab.
- If you do not understand any part of the lesson or need to ask a question you should either make a comment on the stream, email your teacher or add a comment on your work. Staff will respond as soon as feasibly possible.
- When using the classroom stream- do not repeat any questions, all comments must use professional classroom language, no slang and use correct spelling.
- The classroom stream is not for communicating with your peers and / or classmates.
- You are expected to be learning between 9am and 3.30pm.
- You must have staggered breaks away from the computer screen, you should be at your computer for a maximum of 2 hours between breaks.
- All work needs to be submitted when completed.
- There must be no use of Google Hangout videos to contact staff.
