The use of social media (including Whatsapp)

We want our pupils to grow into respectful young people, who understand how to settle differences in a respectful and constructive manner, both online and offline.

Our ICT and internet acceptable use agreements set clear expectations for pupils and parents about online conduct. This is available on our school website.

We appreciate parents working with us and abiding by these guidelines so that we can together model safe, responsible and appropriate social media use for our pupils. It is the responsibility of us all to ‘call out’ the inappropriate use of social media.

This includes voicing opinions about the school in a way that respects the hard work, dedication and professionalism of our staff, and speaking to, or about, other parents and children in a way that is respectful and appropriate.

There may be times where, as a parent, you don’t agree with something the school is doing, or where you may have specific concerns. We welcome your feedback, and the opportunity to address any concerns you may have.

The most appropriate way to raise concerns is directly with the class teacher, phase leader or headteacher, in line with our complaints procedure. This is also available online.

You can call the school and speak to a member of staff, or book an appointment to speak with the headteacher or another member of staff face-to-face.

Thank you for your continued support.
