Image of Social Media

Dear Parent/Carer,

With our ethos based firmly within the Gospel Values and Christ at the centre of our educational enterprise, we seek to develop our students academically, spiritually, culturally and morally; to give them the qualifications to enhance future life chances and the moral compass to contribute positively to society.

Unfortunately we have been made aware of a number groups setup on social media by students that are causing upset and distress to others, this is contrary to our ethos and the values that we promote- including respect for each other.  

A disproportionate amount of time is being spent by staff dealing with issues occurring on social media outside of school and more often than not, the platforms that are being used are not age appropriate for students. so they should not be accessing them.  Please support your child and the school by checking their devices and deleting applications that are not age appropriate.  We request that you regularly check the use of all devices that your child has access to.

You will know that the school publishes online safety advice in our BC14 newsletters on a regular basis, please look out for this.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and support.

Yours faithfully,


Mr Hearnden

Vice Principal
