Using Google For Education Defnyddio Google Ar Gyfer Addysg


At St. Martin's School we use the google for education platform for learning.  It is free and compatible with many different devices.  Each class on the school timetable has a virtual 'google classroom' set up, where teachers post materials, announcements and assignments.  Students will need a class code to gain entry into each individual virtual classroom.  It is worth noting that this system is well established in school and has been in place for over 5 years.  We understand there will always be the odd issue that needs fixing.  Hopefully these FAQ will help you.

How do I access google classroom?

Google Classroom is an app that can be downloaded on most devices or the most common way to access is to visit (your child may be prompted to log in to first).   



It is possible to access google classroom via your child's xbox or playstation.  For more information, click here.

How do I access my child's tasks?

Every google classroom has a tab called 'stream' and 'classwork'.  Stream is generally used for announcements or messages.  Assignments and materials will be posted under classwork.   You may find this Parent Guide to google classroom helpful.  Google classroom codes can be accessed here.

Unfortunately, not at the moment.  The only way for parents to access their child's google classroom room is to sit with the child while they are logged in.
