At Moseley School and Sixth Form we are committed to safeguarding and to promoting the welfare of students.
Chat forums, Facebook and other social media sites are blocked on all Moseley School computers. It is parents’/carers’ responsibility to ensure that their child uses these sites safely at home if they have access to the internet. Moseley School also uses its own monitoring software to help us to safeguard your child.
We recommend that children are always supervised when using the internet at home on phones, computers and other devices. Online grooming is a specific area of concern that can lead to sexual exploitation and/or students being drawn into extremism or radicalisation. Please visit the NSPCC website for useful advice and information regarding internet safety.
This can take the form of verbal, physical or psychological abuse of a child or adult and it will not be tolerated under ANY circumstances at Moseley School. Bullies may face temporary or permanent exclusion.
Violence or assault, theft, repeated harassment or intimidation (eg. name-calling, threats and abusive phone calls, emails or text messages) and hate crimes are illegal and will be dealt with severely, involving police where necessary.
Students may report bullying online – anonymously if they wish – at our school’s SHARP webpage: http://moseley.thesharpsystem.com. They may also speak about their concerns with their House team or any teacher, at any time.
Security of possessions
Mobile phones and other electronic devices should not be brought onto the school site. If seen or heard, they will be confiscated and only returned to parents, who must come to school on Thursdays between 3.15pm and 4.15pm to collect the items.
Children are not always careful where they leave valuables so we recommend parents/carers do not let their child come to school with valuable items or large sums of money (£2.40 a day is sufficient for lunch). We will not make good any losses made by students on the school site.
Uniform, bags, PE kit, coats and other items must be clearly labelled with the owner’s full name to help identify any lost clothing, especially during sports and PE lessons.
We are here to help with any worries, questions, or concerns that you may have.
