Google Classroom

Hello!

We are really pleased to announce the launching of Google Classroom to help support our pupils with home learning. We have had to update our server at considerable expense in order to be able to bring this new approach to learning to St Werburghs. This platform will enable children to access their work set by the school. We are now expecting all children who are not in school to submit their tasks via this platform if they can. The teachers will then be able to see what has been done and respond to any questions or queries. Please remember these may not be answered immediately as staff are now teaching every day in school.

How do I get my username and password?
You need to send an email to: users@stwerburghs.derby.sch.uk with your child’s first name, surname, class and year group in the title i.e. Joe Bloggs Class 9 YEAR 3 
You will then receive your user name and password by return of email.

Having problems?
Please check our trouble shooting guidance on the welcome letter (or try Googling in the first instance). If you have a personal gmail account you will need to sign out and then sign in using your school’s email address. You may need to change your internet security settings dependent upon how this is set up in your home. As users are accessing Google Classroom via a vast array of devices, we would ask that you are patient with us whilst pupils are logging on to the system for the very first time.

For your reference user names will follow the convention below:
