Today in assembly, we learnt about a new system we have in school called tootoot. The following quotes are from the tootoot website.
  • Tootoot gives students a safe voice to be able to report incidents of bullying, cyber bullying or other incident directly to school staff.  Tootoot gives students an alternative way to disclose their concerns when they are unable to do so face-to-face.
  • All too often students are scared or just aren't confident enough to speak to someone face-to-face about their concerns, for fear of being identified and potentially making matters worse. With Tootoot, students are able to safely and anonymously tell their place of learning about their concerns and worries, as a first step to resolving them.
  • Students can log in to tootoot and send their concerns or worries directly to designated staff members. Tootoot is accessible on most internet-enabled devices include computers, tablets and mobiles.
  • Tootoot allows students to attach all forms of media to provide evidence alongside their reports. Screenshots from social media apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter can all be attached, as well as videos and photos. Evidence is only viewable by designated staff members.
Over the next couple of weeks, teachers will have full training on the system and then they will train the children in how to use it. When we are ready to start using the system, we will also sent information letters to parents.
