Online Safety For Staff

As school staff, it is important that you look after your professional reputation, and this is just as relevant online as it is offline.

It is worth reviewing any online content which relates to you, particularly on social media, and adjusting your privacy settings accordingly. A recent TES survey found that 9% of teachers were friends with their pupils on social media, however there is clear guidance supported by the Teaching Unions to say that being friends with pupils on social media is not appropriate.

Below are some useful documents and links to help you make good choices where online safety is concerned.
