School Facebook Page
In common with many other schools, we have a Facebook page to maintain an online presence which is vital for schools, not only in terms of keeping the school community up to date with school events, but also in terms of attracting potential new pupils. The school’s budget is based on the number of pupils who attend. The closer we can get to our limit of 20 pupils per year group, the better we are able to afford making further improvements to the school.
Having a school website is an essential part of maintaining an online presence, but web users must specifically visit the school website regularly to receive this information. By having a Facebook page, the school is feeding school information, news and notices directly into the personal news feeds of parents and the wider school community.
If you are a Facebook user, it would be really helpful if you could help promote our new Facebook page in the usual ways by sharing posts with other local community pages, so that as many people receive the information as possible. The page can be found using the following link;
We adhere to the following protocols with respect to our Facebook page:
- Posts on the school’s Facebook page are created by the school only.
- Parents and members of the public are able to add comments to posts if they wish. Any negative comments will be removed by the school.
- To communicate with the school, there are a range of methods in place which parents can use (these are summarised in the Communications Summary booklet, which is available in the Parents section of the school website). Comments on the school’s Facebook page should not be used when parents wish to communicate with the school.
- Photographs (or video) of pupils are only published to the school’s Facebook page where the school has signed consent from the parents. Parents are reminded that they must not publish photographs or video of school events to social media, since parents do not have the signed consent from other parents to do so.
