From September 2020 Deykin Avenue will be using a new combination of online software to compliment your children's learning and enable a new way that you as parents can communicate with your child's teacher.
You will also be able to see what your child has been doing in school and see what home learning tasks they have been set. We also hope to trial the use of electronic school letters that are sent to your mobile phone and keep you connected with what is going on in school.
ClassDojo is a school communication platform that teachers, pupils, and families can use every day to share what is being taught in the classroom home through photos, videos, and messages.
Soon you will receive a text message on your mobile phone or an email inviting you to join ClassDojo. Follow the simple instructions to sign up for your account. There is a short YouTube video below:
