St Paul's VA Primary School

Seesaw is our way of communicating directly between the children and their teacher.

It can be accessed in a web browser at on a computer or install the Seesaw Class App on an iOS OR Android.

Children’s login details can be found in their book sent home on 20th March. Email if you are having any issues logging in.

Teachers will be regularly updating Seesaw with activities for children to do and will respond to comments. Children just have to post a message on or add an image or file for teachers to view.
