Doddle

Doddle is a new online teaching and learning resource for students at CHS that will replace Frog learn as an online homework system. Doddle allows students to access and complete their homework online and it also has a bank of learning and revision materials that students can access at any time.

Doddle can be accessed at www.doddlelearn.co.uk

Student usernames are set up as follows:

Username: firstnamesurnameyearstarted

  • Year 7 example (joebloggs16)
  • Year 8 example (sarahobrien15)
  • Year 9 example (ahmedchoudry14)
  • Year 10 example (myloedwards13)
  • Year 11 example (shanicthompson12)

Students will be given their passwords in form time. Students can change their password when they first log in. If a student forgets their password all members of staff are able to access or re-set passwords. Alternatively, students can go to Student Services. 

Computer access is available every night after school in F52 (Doddle Club) and F13 (Homework Support) and the library. There are staff available at each venue to support students with their learning and it also provides the opportunity for students to work collaboratively and develop positive learning habits.

You will have been sent a unique ‘parent key’ that you will need to use once when setting up your account. If you need a reminder about your parent key please contact the school. A 'Doddle Guide for Parents' is available to download below.
