Class Dojo


For the last two years, we have successfully been using an App called Class Dojo as both a reward and parental communication system in school. Lots of parents found using Class Dojo a real positive as it meant they were able to see how their child was praised and rewarded in class through the App instantaneously as well as keep up to date about school life and learning.


If you would like to get connected, please let your child's teacher know and they will provide you with a login and information on how to access the App.


Keep an eye out for messages and photos shared by your child's class teachers.
