At Bordesley Green Girls School and Sixth Form we control access to social media and social networking sites. We do understand the need for a social network as school is a place of social learning however; all external social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Bebo are blocked for students in our School.
Students are advised never to give out personal details of any kind which may identify them and / or their location.
Examples would include:
• Real name
• Home address
• Mobile or landline phone numbers
• School attended
• IM and email addresses
• Full names of friends/family
• Specific interests and clubs etc
Students are advised not to place personal photos on any social network space. They should consider how public the information is and consider using private areas. Advice should be given regarding background detail in a photograph which could identify the student or his/her location.
Students are advised on security and encouraged to set passwords, deny access to unknown individuals and instructed how to block unwanted communications. Students are also encouraged to invite known friends only and deny access to others by making profiles private.
Students are advised not to publish specific and detailed private thoughts, especially those that may be considered threatening, hurtful or defamatory
