Remote learning (when necessary - see Remote learning policy & remote learning plan on policies & documents page) will be largely set using 'Seesaw' (an online learning journal). Details of how to access it can be found in the letter home attached below. Your child will need their individual Seesaw home learning login to use this. This is available from the class teacher or e-mail email@example.com stating your child's name and class.
As school closures have persisted for an extended period, further work activities are constantly being added to the SeeSaw learning platform and/or the home learning page. To access the Seesaw resources, pupils will need access to a digital device such as a phone, tablet or laptop and the Seesaw app (Android) (Apple) or the website app.seesaw.me. Additionally, they will need their home access code provided by school. If you have any queries about this please contact school directly by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
