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.

As of 4 January 2021, all schools have closed to all pupils except children of critical workers and vulnerable children. You must provide remote education to all pupils learning at home.

The DfE now expects schools to use a digital education platform, like G Suite for Education or Office 365 Education, to deliver remote learning.

Stay up to date on the full list of expectations (pages 46 to 50 of Restricting attendance during the national lockdown: schools).
