What We Would Like From You

  • Answer the phone to school staff or return calls, messages or emails. Staff may call from withheld number
  • Keep all communication with the school or staff member polite
  • Do not record any part of a lesson or discussion online – this will be considered a serious breach of safeguarding and data protection policy
  • Know that staff will only be available for communication during normal working hours
  • Supervise your child’s internet use and online learning – make sure you are aware of what they have been asked to do and the websites they need to access.
  • Make sure you know who your child is talking to or messaging.
  • If a member of staff calls to speak to your children – check that you know who they are, speak to the member of staff yourself before your child talks to them, stay in the room while your child is on the phone.
  • Make sure all members of the household are aware when a video call is happening,
  • Know that if your child takes part in a group video conversation, they can be seen by the teacher and other pupils (and members of their household) that are part of the conversation
  • Staff, children and other members of the household must wear suitable clothing
  • Devices used should be in appropriate areas, for example, not in bedrooms; parents should use the background blurring feature on Teams.
  • Language must be professional and appropriate at all times, including from any family members in the background.
  • Any ‘live’ classes may have a second adult in the lesson, usually the TA.
  • If the teacher has any concerns about children (or other members of the household) using unsuitable language, dress, location, the conversation will be ended and concerns will be recorded and passed to the Executive Headteacher or Head of School
  • Live classes will be kept to a reasonable length of time and will take place during normal school hours.
  • Staff will only ever video call an individual pupil with prior agreement from parents and the Head of School. The parent or carer must stay in the room.
