We are now using Class Dojo for our home-school communication.
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.
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.
There is also a secure messaging system in place where parents can connect with teachers privately with school work related issues.
If you haven't already signed up to Class Dojo please do so by asking your class teacher for an invite code.
Please read our Class Dojo policy found on both the Remote Learning and 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.
Check out these Class Dojo videos below to show you how it works:
