Online Safeguarding Policy 

The safety of our students is of paramount importance to us, and we have taken the below precautions and guidance, in accordance with the advice of www.nationalonlinesafety.com

We use Zoom Pro to deliver our virtual sessions. We added to our current Safeguarding Policy to cover the use of this platform for our virtual teaching. 


Our policy for virtual teaching is as follows:

All parents will be informed of the dates and times of sessions and the adults who will be in these platforms

Parents are advised not to share the meeting ID or password.

The JK Team will set clear rules of engagement for working on digital platforms. These rules will be in line with the Code of Conduct used at JK when working face to face . 

The Zoom account of the Parent/Guardian's must be used and not the child's or young person's

Parents/Guardians are asked to ensure that children & young people are appropriately dressed for class.

Parents/Guardians are asked to ensure that the live session takes place in an open space, a room with the door open or with a parent present

The JK Team will be the only adults present in digital platform sessions. 

The waiting room has been enabled for each session and children can only enter with host permission.

All students are 'muted' on arrival . The JK Host will adjust as students arrive.

Screen sharing will only be operated by the Host and teachers 

We will only record an online session with prior permission from parents/guardians 

We will not be using ‘breakout’ rooms for sessions

Once all students have entered the session, the meeting room will be locked to ensure only those signed up to the club can enter.

We aim to ensure that by using the measures above that our students are safe, and can enjoy their theatre sessions with parental confidence in our provision.
