Communication on parents’ WhatsApp groups
Use of WhatsApp groups
As we develop children’s understanding of internet safety, we also need to model positive behaviours as adults. Class WhatsApp groups are set up by St Aidan’s parents/carers to stay connected and support each other. They bring opportunities to build the St Aidan’s community but inappropriate use has the potential to impact negatively on families, the school and the wider school community. Please consider the following guidance when using class WhatsApp groups:
IS IT KIND? Be kind and courteous. Healthy debates are natural but kindness is required. Take care before you hit send.
IS IT APPROPRIATE? Is WhatsApp the right channel to raise concerns or express these views? If you or your child has an issue with the school, staff or pupils, please address it with the school directly.
IS IT INCLUSIVE? Treat everyone with respect. No hate speech, bullying or degrading comments.
IS IT PRIVATE? Respect everyone’s privacy. Being part of these groups requires mutual trust: please don’t share private information.
