Accessing Online Resources

Google Meets and Live Lessons
Live lessons will include screen sharing and audio but not video. Guidance on how to join a Google Meet and our expectations for behaviour during live lessons are outlined in our 'CCHS Live Lesson Instructions and Code of Conduct' document.
Expectations for behaviour whilst taking part in live lessons will be high. If students do not meet those expectations, they will be removed from the lesson (removed from the meet) and only able to access the recorded version.
If you have a concern about a live lesson please do not join the lesson and instead report your concerns to the teacher taking the live lesson, via your Class group in Google Classroom or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay Safe Online
Working from home, we will all make greater use of computers and online resources. Some key advice for those working from home:
- Be kind online – when using group chats or social networking sites be mindful of what you say and how you say it.
- Keep your personal details private – if you have not met the person then do not share any information, they could be a fake using this crisis as an opportunity.
- Think before you post, send or forward – there are Coronavirus scams out there, do not allow yourself or your family to fall victim.
- Do not share your password with others – it can be frustrating not getting into a document or an online resource, but passwords are there for a reason.
- Be careful who you webcam/FaceTime with - if you are asked, always let a trusted adult know. Some attachments are malware designed to corrupt your device - do not open an attachment unless you are 100% sure it is safe and from a trusted source
- If anything happens online that worries or upsets you - Tell a trusted adult or report the incident on the CEOP website
- Visit our student e-Safety webpage for further guidance about keeping safe online. Recommended websites offering information and practical advice on staying safe online
