Google Frequently Asked Questions

What is Google Classroom? and how does it work?

Homework is set via Google Classroom.  Pupils will be given their Google login once in school. For more information on Google visit our help page here.

 I cannot see a meeting link when clicking into Google Classroom

Meeting links appear in the top of the Google Classroom banner (see image below) 

Sometimes the links don't appear this will be because the teacher has not activated the meeting yet. Or it could be that you have joined before the link is there. If this happens please refresh the page until you see the link. 

How to I access Google Classroom and Meetings on a Smartphone or a tablet

On both Android and iOS devices Google have apps for both Classroom and Meet. It is best to download both of these apps. For more information on getting the apps please visit the following links https://edu.google.com/intl/en_uk/products/classroom/ and https://edu.google.com/products/meet/

Classroom keeps asking for a class code why is this? 

Please make sure you're logging into Classroom as the student not your own personal or the students personal Gmail account as this will not work. To check you're in the correct account click on the top right on the icon and it will show you which account you are in. You may need to use the switch accounts option to change to the student account. More info on this can be found here https://support.google.com/docs/answer/2405894?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
