Following lockdowns in recent years, Evelyn Street have continued to benefit from online learning platforms. We see them as a valuable tool to ensure that pupils who are absent from school for reasons such as extended illness or unavoidable absence do not miss opportunities in education.
As part of our blended learning offer, we have elected to use Google Classroom as it is a secure and interactive learning network that provides a safe way for your child to access their learning from home. You can access the online platform through your internet browser on a laptop or desktop computer (click here), or you can download the app on most mobile devices - iPad and Android devices. We would not recommend using a mobile for this as it does not support live lessons.
Google Classroom is used as an educational tool and will be used strictly for educational purposes, and so:
- Children will be required to use appropriate grammar instead of texting language
- The site will be used to discuss school-related content only.
For all guidelines, please see our:
All children have been provided with login details. Upon initial login, you may be required to change your password; please ensure this is a strong password that is kept safe and not shared with others. They will also need to ensure that they click 'accept' on the invite to their class. Should you accidently click 'reject', please contact the school office and another invite will be sent.
Each class has an online area that can be accessed by all children in that class, the class teacher and Mrs Smith. Your child may also have additional classrooms if they are taught by another adult for a particular subject, such as phonics.
Following the changes within Government guidance, it is expected that only a limited number of children will be off at any one time. Subsequently, we have made some changes to the way in which our blended off will be used. Should your child be unable to attend but is well enough to complete work then:
- The class teacher will host live sessions so that your child is able to hear the lesson and partake if able to. A schedule of these sessions will be posted at the time.
- The class teacher may upload activities to be completed prior to their return.
Should your child have any difficulties logging in, please see the video below. If they need their login details resetting, please contact the school office as soon as possible.
As part of our blended learning offer, children in EYFS will be using Tapestry. Tapestry is a secure online learning platform in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. EYFS teachers will use this platform to share lessons and activities during any time of absence due to Covid-19. Parents must upload their child's learning to Tapestry to receive teacher feedback.
We appreciate that our EYFS children will require parental support to access their online learning, therefore, lessons and activities will be made accessible for a short period of time for families to utilise at a time most convenient to them.
To access digital learning in a time of absence, please log in to Tapestry account here, you will see set activities and lesson set by your child's teacher.
