Parent Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct for Parents and Carers

(Adapted from the OCC model policy)

November 2016

At Hill View School we are very proud and fortunate to have a very dedicated and supportive school community. At our school the parent body, staff, governors, parents and carers alike all recognise that the education of our children is a partnership process between all these parties. As a partnership we are all aware of the importance of good working relationships and all recognise the importance of solid working relationships to equip all of our children with the necessary skills for adulthood. For these reasons we will continue to welcome and encourage parents and carers to participate fully in the life of our school.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a reminder to all parents, carers and visitors to our school about the expectations around the conduct of all parents and visitors connected to our school.

We understand that everyday frustrations can cause misunderstandings and have a negative impact on our relationships. Establishing where this happens, that we remain committed to resolving difficulties in a constructive manor through open positive dialogue is however essential. In this way we can continue to flourish and progress to achieve, in an atmosphere of mutual understanding. Our school already has a code of conduct for all our employees but this code is aimed at the wider school community so that all can see and understand the expectations on the behaviour of all visitors or those connected with the school. The policy aims to clarify the types of behaviour that will not be tolerated and seeks parental sign up to these expectations. The policy also sets out the actions the school can take should this code be ignored or where breaches occur.

 

Behaviour that will not be tolerated:

  • Disruptive behaviour which interferes or threatens to interfere with any of the schools normal operation or activities anywhere on the school premises.
  • Any inappropriate behaviour on the school premises.
  • Using loud or offensive language or displaying temper.
  • Threatening in any way, a member of staff, visitor, fellow parent/carer or pupil.
  • Damaging or destroying school property.
  • Sending abusive or threatening emails or text/voicemail/phone messages or other written communications (including social media) to anyone within the school community.
  • Defamatory, offensive or derogatory comments regarding the school or any of the pupils/parents/staff/governors at the school on Facebook or other sites.
  • The use of physical, verbal or written aggression towards another adult or child. This includes physical punishment of your own child on school premises.
  • Approaching someone else’s child in order to discuss or chastise them because of the actions of this child towards their own child. (Such an approach to a child may be seen to be an assault on that child and may have legal consequences).
  • Smoking, taking illegal drugs or the consumption of alcohol on school premises. (alcohol may only be consumed during authorised events).
  • Dogs being brought on to the school premises (other than guide dogs).
  • Use of mobile phones on the school site (as per the safeguarding notices around the school site).

Should any of the above occur on school premises or in connection with school the school may feel it is necessary to take action by contacting the appropriate authorities and/or sadly, consider banning the offending adult from entering the school premises altogether. Thank you for abiding by this policy in our school. Together we create a positive and uplifting environment not only for the children but also all who work and visit our school.

Please note: can parents/carers please make sure all persons collecting their children are aware of this policy.

 

What happens if someone ignores or breaks the code?

In the event of any parent/carer or visitor of the school breaking this code then proportionate actions will be taken as follows;

In cases where the unacceptable behaviour is considered to be a serious and potentially criminal matter the concerns will in the first instance be referred to Thames Valley Police. This will include any or all cases of threats or violence and actual violence to any child staff or governor in the school, This will also include anything that could be seen as a sign of harassment of any member of the school community, such as any form of insulting social media post or any form of social media cyber bullying. In cases where evidence suggests that behaviour would be tantamount to liable or slander then the school will refer the matter to the County Councils Legal Team for further action. In cases where the code of conduct has been broken but the breach was not libellous, slanderous or criminal matter, then the school will send out a formal letter to the parent/carer with an invite to a meeting.

If the parent/carer refuses to attend the meeting then the school will write to the parent/carer and ask them to stop the behaviour causing the concern and warn that if they do not they may be banned from the school premises. If after this behaviour continues the parent/carer will again be written to and informed that a ban is now in place.

Note: (1) a ban from the school can be introduced without having to go through all the steps offered above in more serious cases. (2) Site bans will normally be limited in the first instance.

 

Complaints

This code of conduct does not prevent parent/carers from raising a legitimate complaint in an appropriate fashion.

In most cases we hope that all complaints and concerns can be resolved through open dialogue with class teachers or other members of staff as appropriate.

Where you are not satisfied with responses received however, we would ask that you then follow the complaints procedure as laid out in our school complaints policy. This is available on the schools website but if you would prefer please contact the school office and we can arrange for a hard copy to be made available.

 

Issues of conduct with the use of Social Media

Most people take part in online activities and social media. It’s fun, interesting and keeps us connected.

There are various online school groups managed by parents for parents, such as class Facebook pages, and they can be a wonderful source of knowledge, support and advice. We encourage you to in and positively participate if you wish.

Within these spaces however we ask that you use common sense when discussing school life online.

Think before you post.

We ask that social media, whether public or private, should not be used to fuel campaigns and voice complaints against the school, school staff, parents or pupils.

We take very seriously inappropriate use of social media by a parent to publicly humiliate or criticise another parent, pupil or member of staff.

 

If parents have any concerns about their child in relation to the school as we have said above they should:

  1. Initially contact the class teacher
  2. If the concern remains they should contact the head teacher
  3. If still unresolved, the school governors through the complaints procedure

They should not use social media as a medium to air any concerns or grievances.

 

Online activity which we consider inappropriate:

  • Identifying or posting images/videos of pupils without consent
  • Abusive or personal comments about staff, pupils or other parents
  • Bringing the school in distribute
  • Posting defamatory or libellous comments
  • Emails circulated or sent directly with abusive or personal comments about staff or pupils
  • Using social media to publicly challenge school policies or discuss issues about individual children
  • Threatening behaviour, such as verbally intimidating staff, or using bad language
  • Breaching school security procedures

 

At our school we take our safeguarding responsibilities seriously and will deal with any reported incidents appropriately in line with the actions outlined above.

A snap from Rob's Instagram reveals the former Keeping Up with the Kardashian star's sleeve matches up with the one in the picture.remy hair extensions Back in September the reclusive star, 28, had sparked dating rumors with Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran as he shared a snap of her on his Instagram account. He wrote alongside the close-up photo of the model - which immediately sparked thousands of 'likes' from his Instagram followers: 'I like when she send me pictures.' Previously he had famously dated The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon from 2007 to 2009, before a messy breakup which would later prompt Twitter feuds between the star and Rob's sisters. Kardashian, who's shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet, is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. After the photo emerged, E! News confirmed that the pair were in fact dating, though noted things are complicated. A source has told the publication that there is 'concern' about the pairing, with the insider feeling that Blac is 'preying' on Rob 'during a weak time.' It is also a concern that Blac is only using Rob to get back at Kylie Jenner, since the two have been feuding since the E! star got together with her ex - and father of her son - Tyga. The source explained how Blac and Rob got together, despite the latter becoming reclusive over the past year. Making changes: Rob (pictured with mother Kris Jenner in 2013) has recently shed 15 pounds as a result of his new workout regime and diet and is believed to be planning a comeback on his family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians

'She and Rob have known each other for a while and she had been staying in touch,' the insider shared with E! News. In October Blac was rumored to be dating Ciara's ex Future, even showing off a tattoo she had gotten of his name on Instagram - though the rapper denied the relationship. He took to Twitter, posting: 'Single & focusing on what makes me happy,' then - as if to further deny any connection to Chyna - followed it up with: 'U kno I dnt f**k wit no rumors...' And prior to that the entrepreneur was linked to pro boxer J'Leon Love, with whom she reportedly split in September, as reported by TMZ.perruques cheveux naturels Small world: Blac Chyna was previously engaged to Tyga - currently dating Rob's little sister Kylie Jenner (pictured in 2014) A part of the group: Before Kylie and Tyga got together, Blac Chyna was very close with Kim Kardashian, and even starred in the family's E! reality series (pictured filming with Kim, Kourtney, and Scott Disick in 2013) Blac most famously dated Tyga - currently dating Rob's younger sister Kylie - from November 2011 to late 2014, and the two were engaged for less than two years. The exes share three-year-old son King Cairo Stevenson. Though they officially went public after Kylie's 18th birthday this past August, Kylie and Tyga certainly had not been shy about being in public together, fueling dating rumors since October 2014. This has caused a lot of tension between Blac, Tyga - real name Micheal Ray Stevenson - and Kylie, extending even to her older sisters. Kylie and Blac Chyna - real name Angela Renée White - had been involved in a feud for months, with the pair regularly lashing out at each other on social media. The way they were: The model was best friends with Kylie's sister Kim before the 18-year-old began dating her ex Tyga (pictured in 2014 with ex Tyga, Kim and husband Kanye West) Moving on: Not long after their split in 2014 Tyga was spotted out with Kylie, prompting dating rumors - they have since gone public following the star's 18th birthday in August (seen here at Olivier Rousteing's birthday in October) The Lashed founder came under fire in April as she shared a series of texts that allegedly showed her ex Tyga was trying to reconcile their relationship. Then Kylie reportedly jumped to Twitter to diss the star - and her claims - writing: 'I wish a certain someone would hop off already. It's really stupid to stoop down to a childish level over male attention, get over it please.' However, the Lip Kit by Kylie founder made sure fans knew she was staying out of it, as she later clarified the issue to her followers. Kylie posted: 'I didn't know u could change the font size on tweets now #fake (sic),' as it was proved that her snarky post was actually a fake. Shade: Tyga's former love Blac took aim at the youngest sibling of Kim Kardashian by mocking Kylie's signature full pout with an Instagram photo of herself wearing huge fake wax lips And it continues: Then in August the mother-of-one took to Instagram to share a series of snaps, showcasing her hot bod in a bright pink bikini, seemingly hitting at her ex as she captioned one sultry image: 'I know u Miss me'

It's been the week from hell for Taylor Swift after Kim Kardashian leaked a video online of the singer giving consent to husband Kanye West to use her name in his latest Famous single. And as she continues to hid out in her Queensland, Gold Coast hotel, boyfriend Tom Hiddleston has continued to venture out and mingle with members of the public. Earlier this week, the 35-year-old posed for photos with young fans as he ventured out to buy dinner.

He seemed more than happy to stop for the picture, leaving the mother of the two children gushing with excitement.perruques cheveux Crystal captioned the moment 'What an absolute gentleman,' before taking to the comments section to speak highly of their encounter with the Hollywood star. Eating in: The 35-year-old was wondering around the popular tourist destination to purchase dinner for him and Taylor as she hid out in their luxury hotel Unaware: Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked 'He was so so sweeetttt!!! She [Taylor] finally has found a guy that is worthy of her kind little heart,' she began to state. She went on to clarify that 'he was getting them some take away dinner.'

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Crystal for comment. Tom stepped out to purchase the take-away the night before the taped video of Taylor's phone call had been leaked. Kim started the social media war when she dropped an audiovisual bomb on Sunday by releasing a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did. Caught in the act? Kim released a video showing Kanye on the phone receiving Taylor's blessing for using her name on the offending track — something she staunchly insisted she never did Taylor reacted soon after by tweeting: 'That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet, a screengrab of the pre-prepared note'. She claimed her issue was the fact that Kanye called her a 'b*tch', and not that he said he was considering having sex with her — as in the recording she can be heard describing that 'as a compliment'. 'Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b***h' in his song?' the Bad Blood hitmaker wrote. Earlier in the month, Tom had fans in an absolute frenzy while out and about on the Gold Coast. After brushing shoulder's with fans, the actor left 11-year-old fan Bella Terlich crying tears of joy upon meeting her.

After Thursday night's horrific terror attack in Nice, concerns were raised for the cast and crew of Fifty Shades of Grey, who were filming nearby. Yet Dakota Johnson had moved away from the horrors of the south of France as she headed to Paris to continue filming the second film in the franchise on Monday. The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms.

Boosting her already long legs, the brunette beauty sported chic double strap flatforms which added inches to her height. Injecting a superstar touch into the ensemble, Dakota clutched an envy-inducing Hermes Birkin handbag, complete with gold fastenings and a detachable long strap. Coordinating again with the black accents in her ensemble was her over-sized sunglasses which shielded the majority of her face.cosplay wigs Stylish: The 26-year-old superstar looked incredibly elegant as she sidled along in a stylish floral dress with a belted waist which she toughened up with chunky flatforms Initially wearing her hair pulled back in a low-key ponytail, Dakota, who stars opposite Jamie Dornan playing Christian Grey in the movie, later allowed loose locks to cascade over her shoulders. Her trademark long-length fringe was tickling her lashes as she appeared to sport minimal make-up from beneath her glamorous eyewear. The cast arrived in Paris after a stint of filming in south of France, where they were seen taking a dip in the shores before terror struck nearby. A short way from the set, the tragic Bastille Day terror attack in Nice took place, which saw the death of 84 people including 10 children.

Horrifying footage of the moment the truck turned into a deadly juggernaut were uploaded online within minutes, showing a trail of dead bodies left in its path. The devastating events saw the film's producer Dana Brunetti move to reassure fans that everyone involved with the project was safe. Passing on the message from the whole production team, he wrote on Twitter: 'From production: 'Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay. ''Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound. Thanks for everyone's messages and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world.'
