Covid guidance for schools

There are no longer any restrictions regarding COVID. During the pandemic we set up various systems to ensure learning could continue.


Remote Learning via Teams:

At Garswood we set up a Microsoft TEAMs account for all children.  This application is GDPR compliant and allows us to upload files and folders unique to each class and add links to particular websites, video lesson links and folders of work.

There is also a facility on this application to have a conversation between class pupils and their class teacher (Visible to all class users at all times and monitored by the school and local authority). We have disabled the chat facility so that children and staff cannot 'chat' one to one in doing so protecting all members. 

We have attached a word document below (see image) with full guidance on how to access the application from home. Usernames and passwords have now been created and a guide e-mailed out to parents/carers.  Please don't forget that when you first log onto TEAMs please add to the end of your username.





Internet Matters!

Please take some time to look through this website for parents before your children undertake screen time learning or socialising.  There are guides, resources and presentations available to help us all understanding the bigger online world.


Please also log onto our Teams class pages for further, more age specific Internet safety packs.

When virtual learning, communicating, gaming and interacting online it is important to refamiliarise yourself with the online parents guides for all the social media platforms, games and sites. This will help with information on age restrictions, and parental controls that can be put in place to keep our children safe.

And finally...... If you scroll down to the bottom of this page you can enrol yourself onto an Internet Safety course from the National Online Safety.  A very worthwhile accredited course to help keep your child safe online.

Stay safe.
