To support our aim to promote Growth Mindset and positive attitudes to learning, St Joseph’s School has adopted Class Dojo as a new whole school learning and behavior reward system.
Each pupil is given a personal Dojo (a Moshi type character). Every time they display good behavior, or demonstrate good attitudes to their learning, they are ’rewarded’ with a Dojo. The Dojos are collected and displayed throughout the week in class and are celebrated in the Friday Praise assembly.
Click on the link above to see a selection of Dojo characters.
If a parent wishes to make a complaint:
In the first instance this should be brought to the attention of the Class Teacher and/or the Headteacher.
If the matter is not resolved, then the Chair of Governors should be contacted.
The Chair of Governors can be contacted, in writing, via the school office.
