CLASS DOJO & BEHAVIOUR
At Sherrier we use Class Dojo as a communication tool for parents and behaviour feedback.
Please be aware that teachers are not available before 8am and after 5pm so cannot respond in these times.
Teachers are in class all day and will find it difficult to read your messages while teaching. If you have an urgent message please contact the office. This is particularly important with messages about drop-off and pick-up.
Here is a brief overview of how behaviour is monitored across school. You can find further detail in our Behaviour Policy, which can be found on our school website.
Throughout the day, children may move up and down the traffic light and we expect this to happen. Green is where a child should remain for the majority of the school day, however they may move to yellow and red but back to green throughout the day allowing them to correct their behaviour and learn from it.
Yellow Card – you will receive a message about why this has been given -1 point on Dojo.
If your child has remained on Red throughout the day and have not changed their behaviour they will receive a yellow card. This will mean they lose 1 point on Class Dojo and you will receive a message explaining why. The children will receive a consequence in school, which is based upon their age. In most instances the child will miss some time from their break or lunch.
Red Card – you will receive a message on Dojo about why this has been given – 3 points on Dojo.
These are given to a child when the behaviour they have displayed has been severe. Some examples of these behaviours could be fighting, hurting others or damaging school property. These incidents will be explained in detail to you by the class teacher. The child will receive a consequence in school, based upon their age and the incident.
Class DOJO for Homework
To access the portfolio section, simply log into your Class Dojo parent account. Once connected to the class, tap on the account icon in the upper left corner of the screen, select your child’s name from the drop-down menu and toggle to your child’s account. There you will see the Class Story for your child, the points they have achieved and how many activities they have been set. To see the details of the activities or submit any photos etc. click on the tick with the number of activities underneath. The activities will be listed under ‘To do.’ If you click on the activity it gives you further details. Next to the word completed there is a plus sign in a blue circle. If you press this, you can submit work and photos which can then be seen by your child’s class teacher.
To complete work that has been set on the website, please follow the instructions above and click on the plus sign as described above. To answer questions or tasks that require a text answer, select 'journal' and then type the answer directly.
The video below has been created by the Class Dojo team to show how this works.
