Online learning platform

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new online learning environment for our school. DB Primary is a safe, intuitive and easy-to-navigate learning platform designed to engage and educate the next generation of learners. Here at Green Dragon, we will be able to use DB primary to extend our opportunities for learning beyond the physical boundaries of the school.

This will include the capability for teachers to set homework, provide information and advice on secure class pages, which children will be able to access and work on, from home.

  • Why do we need DB Primary?

    In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Green Dragon Primary School has invested in this online learning platform. DB Primary offers high quality remote learning which children access through their own username and password. It is an excellent platform for teachers to plan a range of learning activities, which can be submitted by the child, marked by the class teacher with feedback and this can all be done in the event of a local or national lockdown.

  • Who to contact if you need help or support

    If your child forgets their login details or you need support, please contact a member of their class using their year group email:

    Year 1 - hydra@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk       

    Year 2 - sphinx@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    Year 3 - unicorn@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    Year 4 - griffon@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    Year 5 - phoenix@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk
