Last week SnapChat, used regularly by many children and young people, launched a new feature. SnapMaps allows users to see the location of their contacts. This feature allows others to accurately pinpoint where you are and shares your location.

There are three possible privacy settings:

  • Ghost mode, where only you can see your position;
  • My Friends mode, where any contact can see your location; and
  • Select Friends mode, just those who you choose can see you

ChildNet have posted a thorough explanation of SnapMaps and how to ensure users stay safe. Please click the picture below to find more information:

Today, the children have taken part in assemblies and some classes have had workshops from the NSPCC.

We learned all about Speak Out and Stay Safe. The message is that if something is bothering us, worrying us or feels wrong, we need to tell a trusted adult.

Investors in Pupils Award

Today, we have been reassessed for the Investors in Pupils award. We first achieved this award in 2010, and we are delighted to have been reaccredited with this important award today. Well done to all our staff and children!

Investors in Pupils award recognises the achievement of the whole school. It values all pupils and helps them to improve the understanding of their role in their learning journey.

We also work within the whole school on increasing children’s understanding of the following areas:

  • Having an understanding of the need to come to school and how learning links with their future aspirations.
  • Knowing the roles and responsibilities of people who help them to learn.
  • Having an understanding of what our School Governing Body Team do.
  • Knowing about where the money comes from to run the school and what needs to be paid for out of this money.
  • Knowing that all pupils at Oxford Grove are valued and included in decision making through School Council.
