Information for Parents
Technology and the Internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.
Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly. Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour isn’t sensible or respectful. Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.
All parents are invited to join staff in setting a good example for our children by:
Demonstrating courtesy and respect for staff, other parents and pupils when comments are placed on social networking sites.
Using appropriate language when discussing school.
Addressing any issues or concerns regarding school, directly with the Headteacher, member of staff or governors rather than posting them on social media.
All parents are invited to join staff in setting a good example for our children by not:
Using social network sites to make derogatory comments or posting photographs which could bring staff into disrepute, including making comments about pupils, parents, other staff members, the senior leadership team, governors, local authority or the wider community.
Posting photographs of other peoples children on social network sites without their permission.
