Due to the increase in direct contact with staff, governors have put in place strict rules for the use of the Google Classroom this is also supported by various laws. Firstly, any inappropriate posts, language etc will result in a ban from the system and may also come under the Malicious Communications Act 1988. The classroom will be monitored by governors and staff. Staff will not be expected to communicate outside of school time this includes holiday periods- note holiday periods may be different as the school has to stay open for key worker children. Staff are not expected to reply immediately thus it may take until the following school day to get a response (Marking of work will take longer). Governors are also going to monitor the workload and future changes may have to happen.
