ClassDojo is an online app used by staff to communicate with you. There is a ‘School Story’ on your newsfeed, where important updates are shared with all parents – it is important for you to check this regularly to ensure you remain up-to-date.
Please click on the picture to go to the ClassDojo website. Alternatively, you can download the app on your smartphone.
ClassDojo also has an individual portfolio for your child/young person and a ‘Class Story’ which will appear on your newsfeed. This is where school staff can share photos, videos and messages about your child/young person’s day, and you can also post photos or videos from home if you wish to. Please check ClassDojo every day and respond to any comments by staff whenever you can. If your child or young person is travelling on school transport we won’t see you very often – therefore this communication system helps to maintain regular contact with you. ClassDojo is regularly checked by staff throughout the day, enabling you to easily send a message after your child/young person has left for school or throughout the day.
It is particularly important to let us know if your child/young person has slept poorly, seems out of sorts or has fallen out of step with usual daily routines of eating and toileting. This will help us to care for them at school. It is also useful if parents and carers could inform us about activities carried out at home such as an outing or going swimming etc., to enable us to talk about these with your child or young person at school. Please avoid giving messages to transport staff as we cannot ensure that this information will reliably reach staff in the classroom.
The Senior Leadership Team, the Pastoral Team, Admin staff, and Class Staff can all use ClassDojo to communicate with you.
There is also a ‘ClassDojo Support’ account that we have set up, which you can message if you are experiencing any issues with ClassDojo and this will be picked up by our Learning Mentors.
Please contact us if you have any queries at all – we are always happy to talk should you have any concerns. At Evergreen School we work closely with parents and carers to support them and ensure their children and young people make the best progress.
