What is Class Dojo?
Class Dojo is a digital classroom management tool designed to help our teachers and school communicate more effectively with parents. It connects teachers with our pupils and parents to build amazing classroom communities.
Class Dojo is a great way for you to keep up to date with your child's class activities and school events.
Each pupil gets an avatar and teacher’s award dojo reward points for things such as good homework, participating in class, staying on task, completing good work, following our eight golden rules and school values. Teachers can use a tablet or computer to give points throughout the school day. Each pupil’s points can be displayed via a smart board, and parents, via their app, can see these. Teachers can communicate with parents on a 1:1 messaging service or via the class page where general class messages can be shared or via the whole school page.
Class Dojo also includes a messaging service. The messaging within Class Dojo is a great way to contact the class teacher and discuss any issues that may arise or to ask any questions you have. News and events will also be posted on the School story, along with Monteney Mail and letters.
All teachers using Class Dojo have set ‘quiet hours’ on their page. This may mean the teacher may not read or reply to messages out of the designated hours.
Quiet hours are between 5.00pm and 8.00am weekdays and all weekends and holidays.
We would still urge you to contact school via the school office if the message is urgent as we cannot guarantee the teacher will see the message straight away.
This gives you information about what is happening in school on a day to day basis. It may alert you to events ie parents evening, special events, or it may alert you to an issue you need to be aware of or it may just celebrate something exciting that is happening in school.
If you haven't already signed up to Class Dojo please do so by asking the class teacher for an invite code. If you would like any more information about our Class Dojo please see your child's class teacher or visit Class Dojo.
