At Northfield Manor Primary Academy, we use ClassDojo, a communication app for the classroom. It connects teachers, parents, and pupils to share photos, videos, and messages through the school day and gives parents a sense of the classroom as experienced by their child
ClassDojo is also a behaviour management tool for the classroom. Each student has a profile – complete with their own avatar – to which teachers can assign points (or ‘dojos‘) throughout the lesson. Parents are able to see the points that children receive and praise their child as a result.
All messages sent by parents on ClassDojo Messaging can only be viewed by the teacher. No other parent can view your messages.
Your child’s class teacher will give you your log-in details for ClassDojo.
We ask parents to adhere to the following rules when using ClassDojo:
Rules for use:
- Messages are only sent through ClassDojo between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm in support of work-load and well-being considerations for parents and teachers.
- Class Dojo is only used to share your child’s everyday experience of learning in and beyond the classroom. It may also be used to send reminders to parents regarding trips.
- ClassDojo is not to be used for parental complaints – (please contact school in the usual way should the need arise) or for detailed discussions – again should you want to discuss your child’s learning, please see your child’s class teacher
