Northmead Junior School recognises that access to social media platforms outside of school gives staff, parents and families greater opportunities to learn, engage and communicate. We are committed to keeping staff, parents, carers and families up-to-date with news, events and reasons to celebrate.
We encourage teachers, students, staff, and other school community members to use social networking/media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) as a way to connect with others, share educational resources, create and curate educational content, and enhance the classroom experience. While social networking is fun and valuable, there are some risks you should keep in mind when using these tools. In the social media world, the lines are blurred between what is public or private, personal or professional.
We’ve created these social networking/media guidelines for you to follow when representing the school in the virtual world and to outline the guidelines and behaviours that users are expected to follow when using school social media platforms.
