At Clapham Manor we are commited to the safeguarding and well being of pupils. To ensure all members of the school community are able to use the blog safely we ask that you uphold these blogging guidelines at all times:
Children’s Identity: To ensure children’s identity is protected on the internet, any photos or videos published at school on public sites and networks will not have any captions, titles, tags or descriptions that reveal the name of the relevant children.
Parent Comments: When making a comment about an image or video clip on a class blog, or other site used in school, parents should not use a child’s name. Parents’ usernames should also avoid stating the name of their child. This will prevent any matching of children’s names to their images or video clips.
Children’s Contributions: Children who publish text, photos or video on public sites as part of their learning at school are instructed not to reveal their identity or the identity of other children, instead they are to sign off using their initials.
Monitoring: Teachers regularly monitor blogs and other relevant sites and software, and remove any posts as appropriate. Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like an item removed. All posts and comments are approved by teachers before being published.
Some images and videos published on blogs and other sites may offer links to non-school content.
