Social Media

We publish information about our school and communicate with parents / carers in many ways including through parents’ evenings, informal meetings, newsletters, email, text messages, our school website and, more recently, social media.

We welcome anyone who is interested in the life of our school to follow us and connect with us on the social media site Twitter. This site allows us to communicate more about day to day life in school; the kind of detail that wouldn’t normally be enough for a newsletter or a meeting.

Use of sites

It is important for everybody’s safety that we are clear about how we use Twitter and what is acceptable behaviour from the people who choose to follow us. We use Twitter to publish information that is of general interest. We do not believe it is an appropriate place to discuss personal matters that are specific to individual members of our community, whether that be children, parents or staff.

Privacy

We will not –

  • publish photographs of children without the written consent of parents / carers
  • identify by full name any of the children featured in photographs
  • allow personally identifying information to be published on our social media accounts

Respect

We will not –

  • tolerate any form of bullying on our social media account
  • allow posts or comments that refer to specific, individual matters between the school and members of its community
  • tolerate any comments or posts that are defamatory, rude or abusive towards any member of our school community, whether that be children, parents, staff or governors

Our rules

Where allowed by the site, we welcome comments on the information we post. However, we reserve the right to delete comments and ban further comments from anyone who breaks the terms of our policy

We will ban and report anyone who breaks the terms of service of the relevant social media platform.
