Your child should already have their log in details for  Seesaw, if they are no longer connected please ask your class teacher for their log in code. 

We would also encourage parents and carers to sign up as a family member.  this allows you to access announcements and to monitor your child's home learning.

You can download the Seesaw family app in the app store on your phone and will need a QR code available from your class teacher to join.

Seesaw is an online learning platform that is accessible from most electronic devices connected to the internet and addresses some of the issues gathered from our parent feedback from the lockdown :

· Printing – worksheets not great - seesaw allows children to edit and adapt worksheets on their devices and submit.

· Access - some only could use tablets/phones - Seesaw is accessible from most devices.

Over the next few weeks we will be showing the children how to use the new platform in the event of any further lockdowns to help us to improve the delivery of our remote learning.
