Communicating with staff here at North Cottesloe Primary has been made easy through the use of a number of mobile communication applications. The school currently uses a range of apps including: Dojo, SeeSaw and Freshgrade. Teachers may also use their Department of Education email to make contact with individual parents should the need arise. Email addresses are usually in the form of firstname.lastname@example.org and teachers will communicate their preferred method of contact early in every school year. During instruction time, teachers will not be able to attend to communications due to the dedicated nature of lesson. Teachers will check communications from parents at least once a day and try to be prompt in returning any queries. If an urgent matter arises that require students or teachers to be informed, please contact the school’s front office and a message will be sent to the teacher as a matter of urgency. The school looks forward to transitioning to the use of SeeSaw for the main method of parent communication in 2019 and 2020. Email will continue to be used for more personalised contact.
