What is School Documents?

Available to: Teachers, Students (read only) and Frog Admin.

As a Frog Admin user your role will include updating the School Documents area with files to be made available to the whole school. These may be (but not limited to) staff and student handbooks, policies, letters home or page templates. To ensure proper management all files should be categorised into clearly named folders. Loose files should not be allowed in this area.


The format of the files is up to you. They can be zip files, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF’s, mp4 videos or MP3 audio files.

Students have read only access to files in the School Documents area. This means that students can download any files stored here. Teachers have full access and can both add and delete files.

Note: The School Documents area is visible by both teachers and students. Do not use School Documents to store confidential information. When required, use the Use in new site function in the My Documents area to share files privately instead.

To access School Documents, Select FrogDrive in the Frog Bar.
Select Documents on the left.
Then select School Documents.
In the School Documents area it is best practice to always upload files directly into folders. This helps keep the School Documents area tidy and files easier to find.
If there are no folders in the School Documents area, it is recommended that you create a folder first.
