Share our factsheets for Google Classroom (part of G Suite for Education) with your pupils, parents and staff, so they can easily get set up and start engaging if they need to self-isolate.

From 22 October, schools must provide immediate access to remote learning to any pupils who can’t attend school due to COVID-19, including:

  • Individual pupils, whole classes, groups, and small numbers of pupils self-isolating
  • Pupils staying at home due to local or national restrictions (like whole-school closure)

You aren't required to use a digital education platform, but a platform can help you meet some of the DfE's expectations (like setting work each day and gauging pupil progress).
