We use a reward system in school called Class Dojo these are online creatures that your child can personalize, and if your child follows school rules and routines and strives to do their best, they will receive Dojos through the week. Again you will receive an invite and you can log on to ‘Class Dojo’, where you can see one of the ways we give positive feedback.

We are also on Twitter, so watch out for our tweets! You can find us at @mcps_pheasant As well as posting what we are getting up to in class, we use Twitter and the school website to remind you of events and news. It’s worth logging on and giving us a follow!
