‘Think before you post’ - We ask that social media, whether public or private, should not be used to fuel campaigns and voice complaints against the school, school staff, parents or children.
We take the inappropriate use of social media by a parent to publicly humiliate or criticise another parent, member of staff or child very seriously.
If parents have any concerns about their child in relation to the school as we have said above they should:
- Initially contact the class teacher
- If the concern remains they should contact the Headteacher
- If still unresolved, the school governors through the complaints procedure
They should not use social media as a medium to air any concerns or grievances.
Online activity which we consider inappropriate:
- Identifying or posting images/videos of children
- Abusive or personal comments about staff, governors, children or other parents
- Bringing the school in disrepute
- Posting defamatory or libellous comments
- Emails circulated or sent directly with abusive or personal comments about staff or children
- Using social media to publicly challenge school policies or discuss issues about individual children or members of staff
- Threatening behaviour, such as verbally intimidating staff, or using bad language
- Breaching school security procedures
At our school we take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously and will deal with any reported incidents appropriately in line with the actions outlined above.
