At Rice Lane Primary School, we recognise that access to school Twitter accounts (and future emerging social media networks) gives pupils, staff and parents greater opportunities to learn, engage, communicate, and develop skills that will prepare us for work, life, and citizenship. We believe that a school Twitter account is an excellent way for you to stay up-to-date with what has been happening in school on a daily basis and as a way of informing you of future events. It is also a great way of helping our pupils develop 21st-Century technology and communication skills and informing them how to be cyber safe.
As Twitter is web-based we adopt exactly the same rules for our school Twitter account as we do for our school website. No child’s name will be published on the Twitter feed and no photographs of your child will be displayed, if you have not given permission.
Please note that the school will not respond to ‘direct messages’ on Twitter. If you wish to contact the school, please do so via the usual methods.
Our Acceptable Use Policy is available on the ‘Policies’ page of our website.
