Facebook Incident - Thursday  11 January 2018

Dear All

You may be aware that there was an incident shared online yesterday which involved some of our students in lower school. As soon as we received notification of the incident please be assured that we acted immediately to investigate it in full and had already set in motion a series of action before the end of the school day yesterday. Whilst we absolutely appreciate being notified of the incident we would respectfully ask that parents and students do not share videos and photos of our students on social media due to the longer term implications that this can have for all involved.

 The NSPCC recently launched a campaign that explains why it is essential to report online bullying but not share it on social media. The NSPCC, as experts in this field, have outlined three core reasons why reporting and not sharing is important and these are outlined in the image below and in more detail HERE.

Whilst you will appreciate that we are not able to comment on the specific incident online with anybody that is not directly involved, if you have any further questions or concerns about our general approach to the welfare of our students please get in touch.

 Many thanks for your support in this matter.
