Class Dojo is an online platform that we use At Madresfield in a number of different ways. One of the main uses is for us to share and celebrate the very many good choices that the children make on an individual, small group, whole class or whole school basis.
When Dojo points are awarded to the children they are given a reason for why they have earned it so that they know why what they did was a good choice. Some examples of what teachers reward children for are for excellent work, showing readiness to learn or participating extra curricular events.
We feel that Class Dojo is also used as an essential communication tool between class teachers and parents. There is a messaging service for individual one-to-one messages for this. There is also a 'class story' area where the teachers share events that are happening in the class or will upload photos of the school day.
At home, parents can see what the children are learning about, as well as being able to communicate simply and safely with their child's class teacher. Class Dojo is 100% free for teachers, parents and students. Class Dojo is easily accessible and can be accessed via an app or internet browser. More than one parent can sign up to access their child's profile too!
