Google Classroom

At Falmouth School, we embrace the power of technology to enhance your child's education. Google Classroom is our chosen learning platform, seamlessly integrating various Google Apps to provide a collaborative and efficient online environment for both teachers and students. As parents and carers, your active participation is vital in ensuring the success of your child's digital learning journey.

Accessing Google Classroom:

As a parent or carer, you won't have direct access to your child's Google Classroom. However, we encourage you to actively engage with your child by sitting down together to explore their Classroom. Discuss their learning, upcoming assignments, classwork, and any notifications from teachers. To access Google Apps on a web browser, visit google.co.uk, and have your child sign in using their school login details. For a more seamless experience, recommend that your child downloads the Google Apps on a mobile device via the App Store/Play Store.

Child's Access to Google Classroom:

To help your child navigate Google Classroom:

  1. Ensure they are logged into their school account.
  2. Access the Classroom via the menu, accessible through the 9 dots icon at the top right of the web browser.
  3. Bookmark the page for easy access in the future.
