As school is now closed to the majority of pupils we now expect all pupils who are at home to complete daily home learning to ensure they do not fall behind in their studies. The work completed in school and at home will be the same and will be completed through the Seesaw app. It is expected that all pupils will participate without exception. If your child is not engaging in home learning you will be contacted by a member of the Senior Leadership Team who will try to help break down barriers to learning.
We have organised equipment packs which will contain the following:
- Exercise Books
- Stationery (pens/pencils/colouring pencils etc)
If you would like to arrange collection of one of these please contact the school via email to arrange.
Please click on the following link to access information from the Government about how to apply for additional data from your phone operator.
If you have any issues accessing Seesaw we ask that you contact us our parent email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to help you to resolve the issue.
What will school offer for Home Learning?
The work on Seesaw will try to replicate the school day closely. Each day will begin with a class Zoom meeting which will be an opportunity for the children to see staff and pupils in their classes. A set of work will then be posted for the children to access during the day, this will be a mixture of pre-recorded videos, activities for the children to complete and links to games and websites. It is expected that your child will complete the work by the end of the day. Throughout the day, teaching staff will be accessing Seesaw remotely to offer feedback and questions to support learning. At the end of the day the teacher will schedule a further Zoom meeting to discuss the work the children have completed and offer support for any pupils who may need it.
Children will need your support when accessing the activities, particularly our younger pupils however they should have some independence with their answers. They are not expected to get everything correct, if you overly help them we will not get a true indication of how they are doing and we may pitch the next activities too high.
How to use Seesaw
There are two versions of the app that you will need to download: There is a ‘Seesaw Family’ app for parents and carers to use; there is also a ‘Seesaw Class’ app that will be for the use of your child to complete any homework or home learning tasks.
This version of the app is for parent/carers/adults of children in our school. To access the app you will have received an email from the school, please follow the instructions on this email.
From here you will be able to see the learning of your child and their class, we encourage you to comment on the posts to praise your child and the class in their work. You will also be able to communicate with the class teachers via this app and they will be able to respond during school hours – this will help to reduce potential meetings after school and our efforts to socially distance at the school gates.
Please find and read the ‘how-to’ guides below for extra support:

This version of the app is for the children that are in role at our school. From here they will be able to acces their homework and home-learning. To access the app, your child will have brought home a QR code invite that will link them to their class’s account. If your child no longer has this then please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible so that a new one can be issued.
Please see the ‘how-to’ guides below to help your children to access their work:
