As you’ll know Google Classroom has been essential to the way we have worked over the past few months. This online community has allowed learning to continue and is part of our digital strategy going forward into Session 2020/2021.
As part of our digital strategy we now want to roll out an additional feature of Google Classroom which is designed to help Parents/Carers gain an overview of the set tasks and assignments. This feature is called Guardian Summaries and it enables Parents/Carers to receive e-mail updates about:
- Missing work — Work not turned in when the summary was sent.
- Upcoming work — Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails).
- Class activities — Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers.
As a parent/carer you will be able to control the frequency of these updates or decide to opt-out of receiving them at a later date.
Setting up Guardian Summaries
To setup Guardian Summaries your child will need to follow these steps. This must be done by each child in your household for whom you wish to receive e-mail updates.
All pupils have been sent an email with Subject title: Guardian Summary Permission to their Edubuzz account. Your child should complete this form. If this has not been delivered for any reason, use the link: knox.is/guardiansummary which requires your child to log in via Edubuzz.
We will use the main contact email we have on record but there will be an option in the form to add a second email address. It is therefore essential that the pupil record is accurate so please contact us if you wish to make any changes to your stored information.
Please also note that, due to GDPR regulations, your child may choose to opt out of sharing information with you and if they decline permission we will not be able to set up the summaries for you.
