Social Media Information 

 

Please be aware that using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or messaging platforms, such as Whatsapp, to post untruthful, defamatory comments about school, staff and children is classed as a `publication' and as such may be actionable in law. In such circumstances, the school will take legal advice and may take further action. Please also remember that any comments made on these platforms are the views of the individuals who post them and therefore present only one side of any issue. Schools and their staff are bound by professionalism and confidentiality and therefore cannot respond to these comments in the public domain. We would therefore advise parents to take a broad view of anything they may read about the school, it's staff, pupils or parents on social media and if you are concerned to contact school. We will be happy to discuss any issues with you face to face.

If any parent has a concern or complaint please address it to your child's class teacher in the first instance. Most issues can be dealt with satisfactorily in this way. If you still wish to take the matter further please arrange to speak with the Headteacher who will be happy to discuss your concerns. You may also wish to refer to the school's complaints procedure, a copy of which is available on this website under the Policies tab.

Please do not ask staff members to make contact with you or participate in any chat groups via social media. This is against our staff code of conduct and is for the protection of both the  children and the staff. 

If you wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Bushell, Headteacher.
