"To aid communication between parents and carers, many of you will have WhatsApp groups, which operate independently of the school."

Parent/Carer Groups

Parent/Carer WhatsApp groups are a very useful and efficient way of communicating to groups of parents. The aim of using WhatsApp is to send messages to an entire group, which are relevant to school or to the parents in the group.

The messages in WhatsApp groups either come from parents in their personal capacity and are not messages sent on behalf of the school. The school does not post directly on any WhatsApp parent/carer groups.

Code of Conduct

Parents should adhere to the following guidelines when using WhatsApp groups that are associated to school:

-Groups should never be used as a platform to air views/grievances regarding a teacher, child or parent in the class or school
-Groups are not a political platform for airing opinions on current affairs
-Groups should not be used for private conversations with anyone else using the group
-Groups should be used keeping in mind mutual respect and cultural sensitivity between all its members
-Bullying is not to be tolerated and should be reported

Please note, the school considers the following online activity inappropriate:

  • Abusive or personal comments about staff, pupils or other parents
  • Bringing the school into disrepute
  • Posting defamatory or libellous comments
  • Emails circulated or sent directly with abusive or personal comments about staff or pupils
  • Using social media to publicly challenge school policies or discuss issues about individual children

The school takes safeguarding responsibilities seriously and will deal with any reported incidents appropriately. The above inappropriate activity can and will be considered for further action by the school.
