Handy tips for Seesaw

Thank you for signing up to the Seesaw apps: we have put together some handy tips to help.

  1. Make sure you have downloaded Seesaw Family and Seesaw Class.  There are two different apps, make sure you are using the QR code that was sent last week to sign into Family Seesaw only.
  2. Family Seesaw is only a viewing platform; you can make comments and ‘like’ your child’s work.
  3. Seesaw Class is for children to access the work that has been set for them by the teacher.  Children have been given individual QR codes, which can be found in the back of their reading records. They can also use this QR or code to sign in and upload their work. Children have all used this in class this week.
  4. To upload photos of school work on Seesaw Class, click the green ‘add’ button then the photo icon, take the photo and then click the green tick.  This will be uploaded when the class teacher has approved it.
  5. To upload from your camera roll, click the green ‘add’ button then select upload and select the photos from the camera roll or recent pictures.  You can add more photos by clicking ‘+more’ button, to add multiple photos and then press the green tick. 
  6. Teachers will always approve work before it is saved to the learning journal.
  7. If your children are sharing devices, please make sure they sign out each time by clicking on their name (top left) and pressing the ‘cog’, sign out and then sign out again.
  8. The QR code (in the back of the reading record) will have to be used each time to sign in, please keep it safe.
  9. Exercise books will be sent home, in the event of school closure. This will be an ideal place to record and complete the tasks that have been set by the teachers before you take a photo and upload it to Class Seesaw.

If you have any further questions, or you are struggling to access Seesaw, please contact school:  info@broughtonprimary.co.uk and someone will respond as soon as is practicable
