SWGfL Whisper

South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) awarded our school the Online Safety Mark in 2011, 2014 and 2017

Sharing things that upset you is not always an easy thing to do.  SWGfL Whisper is designed to act as another way you can tell a responsible adult at the school about any issues that you or others might be having. Sometimes that way might be easier than a face to face meeting.  This might include:

  • You or someone else being bullied
  • Something happening online that you don’t feel comfortable with and might need some advice
  • If you feel somebody at the school is at risk - either in school or outside of school
  • If you have a problem that you need to talk to somebody about

Please don’t use bad language as we may not receive your message: the school systems may filter and block things like swear words and stop your message getting to the Whisper account.

Your personal details are not shared or stored as part of the process, unless you choose to include them.  When you make a report, you have the choice of including your personal or contact details or reporting anonymously. The message that the school receives may have your information if you have sent it, and the SWGfL Whisper system will not record or store any information on its servers.  Please bear in mind that if you do not give us enough information we cannot act, and if you choose not to include your contact details we will not be able to let you know about any action we have taken.

Please note that this is not an emergency contact - 
if you think someone is in immediate danger you should dial 999

Whilst we hope that the lives of the majority of our students run smoothly, and with few problems outside of those normally experienced by young people in a modern world, this is not always the case.  We hope that the links below will prove a valuable resource for both students and parents if needed.   Underlined headings are live links to indicated websites.

If you are concerned about your daughter's wellbeing, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can support you in supporting her.
