Blogging guidelines and online safety

Internet safety at Rosendale Primary School

Images of children
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.

Some images and videos published on blogs and other sites may offer links to non-school content

 

At Rosendale we consider online safety a community matter.  We are here to support both children and parents in keeping our pupils safe online.

We have set up an online safety group to tackle any issues that arise and to ensure we are working as a school to address online safety.  If you have any online safety queries or concerns please email esafety@rosendale.cc and a member of staff will contact you to offer advice or support.
