What is Seesaw? How do I access it?
We will be using an online learning platform called SeeSaw. SeeSaw is a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Teachers will set work for children to access. Your child will then be able to add their work, including photos, videos, worksheets and drawings. Teachers will then feedback on work through SeeSaw.
This can be accessed here:
If you wish to download the app from the app store or play store, please download SeeSaw class.
You should have received further details via ParentMail about how to log on and your child’s access code.

If you need any support with using Seesaw at home then please contact the school office.
As an Office 365 school, we have access to a piece of software called Microsoft Teams. Through Skype technology, it allows teachers to dial their class, or an individual, and to teach them ‘live’.
Note: You will need to know your Microsoft username and password (e.g. ABC01@TSATStudent.org.uk) – this will have been given to you in a letter. Please contact your school office if you do not have this. Remember, passwords are case-sensitive.
This guide How to access Live Sessons – Primary Students shows you how to access Teams and how to support your child to participate in a video conference.
This document Parental Agreement 12.05 Visual Live Lessons (1) contains the agreement between school and home for online learning.
