Safeguarding Policy -Extended School Closure

 

My child tells me they can’t log-on to school systems. Who do I contact?
The majority of pupils have logged into Google Classroom on several occasions
during the autumn term and should know their passwords.

If they need any support with their login, please contact Mrs Logan by email on
[email protected] or telephone 01234 332290.

We understand that not having access to IT equipment such as laptops can make
remote learning more challenging. If you need support with this, we have a limited
amount of equipment which we may be able to loan to you. Please email:

    timetable where they can and taking their breaks
