Websites & Apps

Updated on 5.10.2022

At Ysgol Craig y Don we use a variety of digital platforms, websites and apps. On this page you will find step-by-step instructions and videos to enable you to support your child at home. Information regarding the platforms that we use as a school is available in the ‘Additional Information’ section (currently being updated) on this page.

We have recently started using the learning journal, Seesaw. Seesaw is a digital platform that allows teachers and pupils to share learning experiences with parents and carers. More detailed information can be found in the sections below.

If you require further assistance with any of our digital tools, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher via Seesaw or the office by email – .

In addition to exploring the sections mentioned above, we encourage all parents and carers to make themselves familiar with the Online Safety area on this page. Here you will find several helpful websites full of advice and information to support your child/ren’s safety and wellbeing online.
