Deanesfield School Notice Regarding Google GSuite for Education & Google Workspace for Education
At Deanesfield Primary school, we are using Google G Suite for Education, this will soon become known as Google Workspace for Education. Google G Suite for Education is a set of education productivity tools from Google that include Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Classroom, amongst many others. These are used by tens of millions of students and teachers around the world.

Students use their G Suite accounts to complete assignments, communicate with their teachers and learn 21st century digital citizenship skills.
