At Great Bridge, we use Class Dojo in order to help bring our school community closer together while providing a safe space for our pupils to start exploring the digital world. Class Dojo is simple, secure, and provides you with a window into your child's school day! It also serves as a means of communication, allowing us to instantly share messages, updates, events, and photos from our classrooms. We encourage all families to join us by signing up for a parent account on Class Dojo. This platform can be accessed on any device, as it is available as a simple, free mobile app for iOS and Android, as well as on any Internet-enabled device. Rest assured, the site and app are safe and secure for your child to use. Only your child and their teachers can view and interact with the work, photos, or videos that they upload to their portfolio.
Parents who provide an email address or mobile phone number will receive a digital invitation to set up a parent account. By joining our online community, you will have access to your child's class updates, be able to download letters, and view examples of their work. Moreover, teachers and parents can directly communicate with each other using the messaging system.
Each pupil has been provided with a unique QR code, such as the one below. The code is specific to each child and will be used to register their account. Once a child is added to Class Dojo, they will continue using the same QR code every year until they leave in Year 6. This allows them to log into their account, view their year group's class updates, and complete assignments set by their teachers.
The video link below explains how pupils upload their work.
