Parental Consent and Password Reset

If you haven’t used Google Classroom before.

In order to set your child up on Google Classroom we need your consent. Google has gone to great lengths to be gdpr compliant and has committed to not using any of the schools pupil information. We only upload Pupils firstname and surname to google and what class they are in. Google will hold this information only within the schools Gsuite domain. You have the right to remove consent at any time and Google will remove all data held for your child on request. More information can be found in the parental letter here. Below is a consent form which can also be used to trigger a password reset if your child needs one.

Logging In

To go to google classrooms please click the below button. If you aren’t already signed in it should ask you to put in your google account details that have been given for your child. It should then take you straight to the list of their classes. If they aren’t present as expected please check the guide below.

Google Classroom Login

Cannot See Pupils Classroom

Sometimes if your device is already signed into a google account it can jump back to that account. This can cause some confusion. On most web browsers when signed into google account you can check in the top right corner who is currently signed in and if this doesn’t show the account for your child you can usually add another user. This isn’t always seen on some devices and below is google trouble shooting guide. The login name you find there should end in @ferndaleprimary.co.uk to show it is part of the school network.

Tablet Devices

A lot of the functions of google classrooms should work on tablet devices. But we can’t guarantee all homework will work with all devices. There are so many different makes and models of Android and Apple devices that over time some of them become outdated . As the use of classrooms evolves we hope that we can find what works best for everyone. Google recommends for the most compatible experience to try and make sure the devices operating system is at the highest possible version and it recommends installing some google apps that help embed the classroom experience. It is recommended to download the Google Classroom app as well as google sheets, google docs and Google Slides from either the google play store or the App store depending on your device.

Games Consoles

As an alternative or additional way to access Google Classroom, it’s possible to use the PlayStation 4’s and Xbox One’s built in web browser. After connecting the console to the internet, it’s possible to use controllers and the built in browsers to navigate to the Google Classroom pages and then access the videos and home learning tasks. Below are how to videos on how to access Google Classroom for both consoles. In addition to this, it’s possible to plug a USB keyboard into the console’s USB port for an easier way to type.
