In regards to improving how we communicate with parents and giving parents greater insight into what happens in school, we have Class Dojo accounts for each teacher and child. Class Dojo is a free app that connects teachers with children and parents to build classroom communities. It can be accessed through a smartphone or tablet on the app, or through a desktop browser.
ClassDojo is how we store “dojo points” (merits for good behaviour and achievement). All parents/carers can access ClassDojo by following the instructions below.
- Parents can request a code from their teachers which will allow them to connect with their child.
- Next, click on your class teacher to connect with them. Enter your child’s name (first and last name). This will connect you to your child.
Along with seeing their child’s number of “dojo points”, parents/carers can get in touch with teachers by messaging teachers through ClassDojo.
At times photos might be posted on ClassDojo – it is important that photos on ClassDojo not be shared on other social media. Our school website is our site to share photos with the wider world. ClassDojo photos are only for the class concerned.
Once you are registered, you can click here to log in.
There is also a secure messaging system in place where parents can connect with teachers privately with school work related issues.
Please read our Class Dojo policy found on the Policies tabs.
Class Dojo is easy to use with a child-friendly interface.
Posts can be translated into 35 different languages in a web browser or IOS device. Unfortunately NOT using android at the moment.
For further information about Class Dojo can be found here. Please be aware that not all aspects that you may see on the Class Dojo website will be in use at our school. We are not using the Dojo points system because we have our existing behaviour management system in school (Golden Coins and Rainbow Rewards) which works well for us.
During these unprecedented times, we will use Class Dojo as an online learning platform should the need arise for an individual to self-isolate, a bubble closure or whole school closure during the COVID pandemic. It will be used as a vehicle for teachers to share remote learning and for parents to send work back into school.
