Seesaw Home Learning App
During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that we stay connected with our pupils whilst at home, both to help reassure them that we are still here for them and care for their wellbeing, and also to provide a way for them to communicate directly with teachers about their learning. With this in mind, we have set up a system called Seesaw, which will enable children to do exactly that by uploading messages or photos to the platform. Unlike our Academy Facebook page and twitter stream, your child’s Class Teacher will be able to reply to them directly, without messages and content being seen by others. We will also use the system to share further home learning ideas and content. Please note that although messages will always be replied to as soon as possible, in the current circumstances, this will usually be between 8.30a.m and 3p.m, Monday to Friday. So please don’t let children be disheartened if a reply isn't immediately received, we will get back to them as soon as we can!
In order to access Seesaw, you will need log on information for your child, which is available via the class links below. Within that tab there is a word document with your child’s initials. To ensure personal details are kept secure, these are password protected with your child’s date of birth in the format DDMMYYYY. Simply enter this DOB when you click on the document. Which should look like this;
This tells you exactly how to access the website or App version of Seesaw (when downloading the App, make sure you choose the CLASS App!).
There is a built in scanner for the QR code provided in the App, but we recommend that you make a note of the code that is shown in point 3, as you will be able to use this if accidentally logged out, without having to return to the website to retrieve your details.
Once logged in, children should see a message from the Class Teacher! To contact them, children can click on ‘journal’ and then on the green 'add' button. The easiest way to keep in touch is by writing a note or sending a photo!
The Class Teacher will also set tasks in the ‘activities’ section. Children can respond directly to these with a note or photo (or try the drawing and video tools if feeling adventurous!).
We look forward to hearing from you and once you are logged on, your teacher should be able to help with any further queries you may have!
Please note that Seesaw is GDPR compliant and by parents accessing login details and accessing the platform permission is assumed.
