Social Media Best Practice for Schools
The Mustard Agency is running 37 “Social Media Best Practice for Schools” training events events between now and December. This three hour long event is all about how to use social media to communicate more effectively with parents – and how to avoid the pitfalls!
Millions of parents (and pupils) use social media every day. At best it can be a very powerful tool. At worst social media can endanger your pupils, your staff and your reputation.
On this course we’ll examine the growth of social media, explore the pros and cons, help you decide which social media platform is right for your school, consider the problems that social media presents, discuss child safety issues and look at how you can safeguard your staff.
We will also discuss how to integrate your social media work with essential communications tools like your school website and your blog or newsletter. You’ll also find out how to deal with attacks on social media from abusive parents on Mumsnet, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
Eight things you’ll learn about at this event…
1. The new social media landscape.
2. Is social media right for our school?
3. Which social media platform should you use?
4. Safeguarding staff and pupil safety – policies used by other schools.
