For Parents

Don't Panic!

Keep calmLearning from home can be a daunting prospect for some parents and carers, but this doesn't have to be the case.

Our lovely staff are available in Teams during the normal school day and can be contacted to help you, as well as your children, if you get really desperate.  The teachers are busy every day hosting online sessions for your children to interact with, and they can support you with any help you might need - (Can anyone really remember the difference between an equilateral and isosceles triangle, or what is a split digraph??).  Please remember their main focus is the children at this time, so they may not be able to answer you straight away.  If you email we will make sure your message gets to the right place.

The websites listed in this section can also be used to help you get up to speed on how to teach your children at home.  Have a look around, Discovery Espresso and BBC Bitesize are particularly useful.

Please make sure, especially in these unusual times, that we have the most up to date contact information for you, particularly your email address and phone number - You might miss important communication from us.

Technical Support

The wonderful tech wizards at GAT have created a parental email address, which is still available to all parents if they would like to contact them to support directly with how to access the home learning. 

The email is for support in use of the learning platform. The advisors can guide parents and carers on accessing the education portal (Airhead), getting into Teams and accessing those areas provided by and supported by the IT Team.  They also have a number of guides and videos that are available to support the use of the system.
Please note: The GAT Tech Team can not support with external systems or subscriptions above the methods to access them through the education portal, nor can they reset passwords as they have no method to confirm the email address is someone who should have access to those details.  These enquiries should still come straight to school via

Online Safety

Now more than ever, it is vital we keep a watchful and protective eye over our children and their Internet activity.  The organisation National Online Safety, has put together a useful sheet of 10 top tips for keeping children safe, and it can be downloaded from below.
