Seesaw Consent

Dear Parents/Guardian

We wish to inform you that this school year each class will be using Seesaw (, a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning. The teacher will be able to assign activities to your child and they will be able to upload their completed work (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal and we will be able to provide feedback. Also in the event of a school closure seesaw will allow us to enable distance learning in a more child friendly way.

In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name in order to be able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content.  You can read more about their strong privacy promises here:

Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, the school must get your consent. For more information on GDPR, please visit

We hope that your child will enjoy using Seesaw to document and share their learning this year.  Please accept permission by logging in to Aladdin and accepting permission for Seesaw.
