Guidance for Parents and Carers; Keeping Children Safe Online

We have updated our information for parents and carers to include a section on keeping children safe online. It provides links to online resources that will help support parents and carers in keeping their children safe online. 

Full details can be found in section 6.3 of the guidance for parents and carers on the closure of educational settings:

Home Learning

We are continuing to plan to ensure that learning at home can continue. We will be updating this day by day but should your child already be self-isolating, we would like to make you aware that they are able to access learning using the following links:

https://www.beaconhigh.org/887/home-learning 

If you require hard copies of any resources, please contact the school and we will be happy to assist you.

Google Classrooms Codes and Sign-In

Attached are the codes that your child can use to join the on-line classroom for each of their subjects.

Note that some groups share the same code. For example, all students in Year 7 have the same code for Drama.

 

Students must first log-in to Google using their school username (e.g. j.smith@beaconhigh.org) and their school log-in password.

 

Once signed in, students can go to the "Google Apps" icon in the top right corner of the screen (9 dots, in a square) and choose "Google Classroom".

 

Students may have been emailed their joining invites through their school Gmail account (one of the other apps. found through the Google Apps icon), but if not then they can join classes using the codes attached.

 

Work can then be completed using any PC, laptop, Mac, tablet or mobile phone that has access to the internet.

 

If using a mobile phone, it is probably easier to download the 5 apps. below, using school log-in details for each one:

 

  • Gmail
  • Google Classroom
  • Google Drive
  • Google Docs
  • Google Slides

 

Kooth.com - Online Support for Young People

 

We would like to remind you of the availability of our online service to support the wellbeing and resilience of your students.

 

Kooth is a web based confidential support service available to young people. Kooth provides a safe and secure means of accessing mental health and wellbeing support designed specifically for young people.  

 

Kooth offers young people the opportunity to have a text-based conversation with a qualified counsellor. Counsellors are available from 12noon to 10pm on weekdays and 6pm to 10 pm at weekends, every day of the year on a drop-in basis. Young people can access regular booked online counselling sessions as needed. Outside counselling hours’ young people can message our team and get support by the next day.

 

When students register with Kooth they will have support available to them now and in the future. Support can be gained not only through counselling but articles, forums and discussion boards.  All content is age appropriate, clinically approved and fully moderated. 

 

To find out more visit www.Kooth.com  where young people can register and others can find out more about the service. 


You can also view a short video about the service at: https://vimeo.com/318731977/a9f32c87de.
