Parental information about Google Classroom

 

What is Google Classroom (G Suite For Education)?

G Suite for Education is a set of education productivity tools from Google including Classroom, Google Drawing, Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Docs and more.  Pupils will be set work on Google Classroom as ‘Assignments’ and will be asked to click a button to ‘mark work as done, hand in or submit work’ for teachers to acknowledge effort, give personalised comments and mark. Work submitted for marking will be outlined by each year group in the assignments. This platform will enable Southmead School to better monitor, manage and give feedback in line with the Department of Education guidelines.   Assessment and feedback is also an area that we are keen to develop and improve further. It will enable staff to better manage engagement in activities and be able to respond to questions and queries and most importantly feedback. Non-engagement will be monitored weekly. As we move forward, and hopefully, to more normal times, we aim to use Google Classroom to set homework - reducing lost homework, paper consumption and support and developing our pupils’ computing skills.

 

How to access Google Classroom

Google Classroom can be accessed on all electronic devices, via a website as well as via the free app on the Apple store and Google Play store.

If using a laptop browser, Google Chrome is recommended, but it can be accessed using all others.

Each pupil at Southmead will be provided with a username (which is an email address) and password to access the suite in the coming weeks. As mentioned, it will begin with KS2 and will be communicated by your child’s Year group team.

 

Data-Protection and common asked questions

To enable access to the Google Classroom, your child has had an email address generated for them so it can link them to all the tools within G Suite Education Account including the classroom, without this they cannot access the Classroom. This is set up under the school domain using their first name and surname and year group only. Children in the lower years will not need to access the email Inbox part of the Suite.

Google provides information about what they can and cannot do with your child’s personal information. You can read Google’s Privacy notice here: 

https://gsuite.google.com/terms/education_privacy.html. On this page, Google provide answers to many common questions, including the types of information Google collects. When creating a pupil account, we provide Google with certain personal information about our pupils, including, for example, a name, email address and membership to their classes. The school will not support the upload of personal photos of children

 

Common Questions:

Does Google use personal information for users in primary schools to target advertising?

No. Google does not use any personal information to target ads, whether in Core Services or in other Additional Services accessed while using an G Suite for Education account.

Can my child share information with others using the G Suite for Education account?

We allow pupils to access Google services such as Google Docs. Users can share information with others within our school domain. 

Will Google disclose my child’s personal information?

Google will not share personal information with companies, organisations and individuals outside of Google unless one of the following circumstances applies:

•    With parent/guardian consent. 

•    Pupils are provided with school-managed accounts, which means our school administrators have access to information stored in them.

•    For external processing. Google may provide personal information to affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for Google, based on Google’s instructions and in compliance with the G Suite for Education privacy notice and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. https://policies.google.com/privacy/update 

•  For legal reasons. Google will share personal information with companies, organisations or individuals outside of Google if it has a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable Governmental request.
  • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
  • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Google, Google users or the public as required or permitted by law.

What choices do I have as a parent or guardian?

If you prefer not to provide your consent, we will remove access to a G Suite for Education account for your child. You can request deletion of your child’s G Suite for Education account by contacting the school at admin@southmead.devon.sch.uk or lgaughan@southmead.devon.sch.uk. If you wish to stop any further collection or use of your child's information, you can request that we limit your child’s access to features or services or delete your child’s account entirely. 

You and your child can also visit  https://myaccount.google.com  while signed into the G Suite for Education account to view and manage the personal information and settings of the account.

What if I have more questions?

If you have questions about our use of Google’s G Suite for Education accounts or the choices available to you, please contact the school.
