Teachers to use communication platform

Teachers at Woy Woy Public School will use the ClassDojo platform to communicate with parents and carers of children in their classes.

"Teachers will send out stage messages and school information on this platform as well," said principal Ms Ona Buckley.

"Teachers will also send individual information to you about your child from time to time and will answer reasonable questions about your child's educational achievements and social and emotional wellbeing.

"The school has a communication policy and requires the expectations to be followed by all users.

"Teachers will be available to communicate with parents and carers around reasonable questions or concerns about their child's progress.

"Teachers are able to confirm information about class or school events and can respond to comments on posts about children in their classes.

"Teachers will not answer any messages during school hours when they will be teaching, doing supervision duties or on school related business.

"Teachers have a duty of care to each child in their class and we all know that learning needs uninterrupted periods of time to be successful and worthwhile.

"Teachers will be available for contact and to respond to ClassDojo messages from 8am to 8:50am each school day morning, and from 3pm to 4pm each school day afternoon (except Tuesday).

"Teachers may not be able to respond straight away to messages sent at these times, but will endeavour to respond to messages within 24 hours of receiving them.

"All emergency messages and messages related to a change of a child's daily arrangements need to be phoned through to the school office. Messages of this sort will be relayed to the appropriate teachers from the office staff.

"ClassDojo is not to be used to criticise, vilify or publicly question teachers.

"Please contact your child's teacher privately to arrange for an interview if you have any concerns you wish to discuss with them."
