School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.

With regards to internet safety


Some members of staff have received requests from pupils in the school to become Facebook 'friends'. The school has major concerns with any child at primary school having a Facebook account as this is a breech in the terms and conditions of Facebook, under 'Registration and Account Security' ~ article 5 ~ "You will not use Facebook if you are under 13".


Under no circumstances should any member of staff accept these friend requests and should they do so, we ask that you inform the school immediately as it may be someone pretending to be a member of staff.  Many of our staff do not use Facebook and the site is not available in school.


Facebook does not provide extensive child security measures for minors because it is not aimed at very young children. Your child is potentially unsafe when using Facebook if you ignore this restriction.
