Growing Lives that Bear Fruit

This week...

    Quick Stop Notices

    This week we have received some additional guidance re the teachers’ standards of ethics and behaviour, both within and outside of school. There is a list for staff, and some of this impacts parents:
    Staff should never contact pupils or parents from their personal mobile phone or give their mobile number to pupils or parents. If staff must contact parents from home, they will do so by school email and not personal phones.

    If staff need to make telephone contact with a pupil or parent, they must use the school telephone.

    There is additional guidance about professional distance on on social media

    Staff should not request or accept friends from school parents unless they are friends in the real world. We realise that many parents in our community do have friendships with staff - that's OK!

    Staff should never add school pupils before they're 18 years old

    Please make sure you help us by respecting these rules around boundaries and confidentiality

    Occasionally staff will share a number for emergencies - e.g school trips and residentials. We would ask you to delete numbers after the event and only use them whilst the trip is taking place
