At St Patrick's we use Seesaw for our home-school communication. This is particularly useful whilst school is closed to parents and non-essential visitors during the pandemic.
Should you be required to self-isolate or learn from home, teachers will communicate your learning through Seesaw.
Children in Key Stage Two also have a Century account as a learning tool from home.
Both Seesaw and Century are used to support homework.
Update January 2021
During the current partial closure children who are at home will be contacted daily by their class teacher or school staff for remote learning. Your child will need access to their own Seesaw account. Information relating to daily tasks and Zoom meetings will be shared via this platform.
Coronavirus update relating to home learning
If your child is absent due to self-isolation or a positive Covid-19 test, home learning will be shared via Seesaw from your class teacher during this time.
Please ensure you are signed up to your class Seesaw Journal in advance.
