Parents of children in North Yorkshire schools are increasingly using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to talk to their friends. Sometimes parents have used these sites to criticise or make inappropriate comments about schools or even individual members of staff.
Making defamatory comments on the internet has exactly the same serious legal consequences as if they are made directly to someone else. Legal action could be taken against the person who has made the outline comment. Similarly threats of violence can lead to criminal proceedings under the Malicious Communication Act 1988.
If you have any concerns about anything which happens in school please speak to your child’s class teacher or the Head teacher who will do their best to resolve the matter.
If you are still unhappy we do have a complaints procedure, which will ensure that your concerns are investigated thoroughly and appropriate action taken.
