Rift House Primary School developed the use of Seesaw as an online learning and communication platform in April 2020, in response to the governments partial closure of schools and implementation of social-distancing due to Covid-19. It is used in every class across the school.
Seesaw is app-based technology which allows:
- Teachers to find and create activities to share with students.
- Students to use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record and more to capture learning in a portfolio.
- Families to see their child’s work and leave comments and encouragement.
The system in our school has been set up centrally, ensuring appropriate accountability and safeguarding procedures are in place. Whilst each teacher will moderate and manage their respective classes on Seesaw, senior leaders have access and will maintain an overview of the whole school.
