Google Information and Documents:

  • YouTube has been set to restricted access. We will update access if we require children to be able to access it. Any problems with inappropriate content, please report it directly to YouTube and let school know as well please.
  • Stream – children are now able to post comments in here to ask for help or to say hello to their friends. Each morning, the staff will be posting an ‘hello’ to their classes.
  • Notifications sent to GMail – You can easily turn this feature off. This will prevent Stream, Assignments and other notifications like this from being sent as an email to your GMail account. These notifications can quickly clutter up your inbox. To turn off these notifications, simply click on the main menu icon in your Google Classroom screen – top left hand corner (3 vertical lines). Click on the clog icon (settings). Under the Notifications heading, there is an option to slide email notifications to off. 
  • Google Meet times are showing in EST time zone – Choose the Calendar from the waffle. In the top right hand corner there is a cog symbol (settings), click on this. In the Calendar settings, the second sub-heading is ‘Time zone’. Click on the little down arrow and scroll down until you find GMT + 00:00 United Kingdom Time. Select this option and it will automatically save.
