Social Media Policy
Friends in Association with Blackpool School (FABS) Social Media Policy
This policy explains how our association uses social media. It is available and applies to all members of our association.
Details of the social media used by our association
FABS uses Facebook , you can see this here: www.facebook.com/FabsPta
Access to the social media used by our association
The FABS Facebook presence is an open page. This means it can be accessed by any Facebook user without permission being given by FABS. This page also accepts postings from any Facebook user, again without permission being needed from FABS.
The Facebook group of FABS is intended for members of the association, in this case the parents and teachers of Blackpool School.
FABS does not want to encourage inappropriate use of social media by children.
How this is used by our association
FABS uses its Facebook page to communicate with members, promote events or elements of events, to recruit volunteers to support the PTA’s activities, thank local supporters and canvass members’ views.
Usage that is not permitted
The Facebook page of FABS is not intended for discussing any aspect of the school other than the PTA and its activities and should not be used to promote any business other than where this is done for the benefit of the PTA and with its permission. Inappropriate posts, including any derogatory comment, can and will be removed by the administrator and the PTA retains the right to ban any user who continues to make inappropriate use of the group.
The FABS Facebook page allows members to post photographs. However, it is explicitly assumed that anyone posting a photograph will own the rights to the image and will have the permission of anyone featured to do so. FABS accepts no responsibility regarding ownership or permissions for any photographs posted by members of the group.
Application of this policy
By using the FABS Facebook page you are accepting the terms of this policy. If you do not agree with any of the terms, please remove yourself as a member of the group.
Availability of this policy
This policy is publicly available through the FABS website (www.blackpoolschool.com), is available to all members of the PTA for whom an email address is held and is referenced as part of the information stated on our Facebook pages.
