Communication with home and school
This year will be using ClassDojo to communicate with parents/carers. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to see wow moments as they happen at school. We will be able to send photos home to you more frequently and be able to inform you if Swimming/ Forest School has been cancelled or to remember kits. You will be able to message the teaching teams directly from the website or app as well as being able to see the whole class story. You will receive a password to set up your accounts (this will take less than 5 minutes) in due course. Please look at the ClassDojo FAQ's for parents from the following link.
