Dear Parents and Carers
As you know we aim to ensure that every member of our school community knows that we are committed to supporting their physical health, safety, and emotional wellbeing. We understand that the impact of COVID 19 concerns many parents, particularly the effects it may have on the emotional health and wellbeing of their child. We are pleased to announce that to support our students we have partnered with Tootoot to ensure that our students are able to seek support from our dedicated pastoral and wellbeing team.
Tootoot is a safe, secure, and diverse web-based safeguarding tool, which allows students to report wellbeing concerns as well as any bullying issues they may be facing in an anonymous, confidential and discrete manner. These individual cases are monitored, managed, and resolved by staff within the school. Tootoot reduces the friction and stigma attached to the reporting of such incidents, and ultimately provides us with the tools required to track, monitor, and resolve cases efficiently, support wellbeing and reduce instances of bullying.
Tootoot not only encourages students to report their concerns, it also encourages them to work together and strengthen communication links between them and their teachers by removing barriers.
Each student has received an email with a link to set up a secure password, this can be found by your child searching for tootoot in the inbox of their school email account. Once set up they can quickly report incidents and concerns directly to school. Each school has their own sub-domain therefore only teachers and students from our school will be able to communicate with one another. All students are anonymous at the point of reporting, but identities can be uncovered by the school’s designated tootoot administrator only if it appears the student’s emotional or physical well-being is at serious risk. Once their account is set up students can access tootoot on any web-enable device (computers; laptops; tablets or mobiles) by following these 4 simple steps:
Step 1: Type www.tootoot.co.uk into their web browser.
Step 2: Click ‘Login to tootoot’
Step 3: Start typing the school name and select it from the box
Step 4: Enter their username and password, and log their concern with the school
Students have watched an introduction to tootoot in their virtual year group assembly, a copy of the introduction can also be viewed through our website by following this link: https://www.charlton.uk.com/quick-links/students/anti-bullying-promise
