Child safeguarding and protection protocols during zoom calls
The following set of guidelines are essential to Zoom calls:
A parent/guardian/designated adult must be present for the duration of the call (in the room but not on the screen – it may be necessary from time to time for a parent to assist a younger pupil in managing controls).
Zoom calls will not be recorded by anyone.
The call should take place in the kitchen, living space or office (not in the child’s bedroom).
Our School Standards of Behaviour apply (we respect ourselves and other people; we are kind, helpful and polite; we act in a safe way; we care about how others feel; we work together to solve our difficulties).
Children should be clearly visible on the screen (no virtual wallpapers or filters – one plain coloured wallpaper is permissible, no hats, scarves or masks except for cultural clothing).
No communicating with others in the class on other apps while the class is taking place.
Children will not use the Zoom Chat facility at any time during the lesson. Children are also requested to mute mics.
Please ensure that your child is on time for a scheduled video or they may be refused entry. Please request to join the Zoom call approximately five minutes before the scheduled start time.
It is important to note that any breach of the above guidelines may result in a discontinuation of this method of communication. A breach may also result in a person being immediately removed from a meeting or in a meeting being immediately terminated.
