Throughout our school we have a number of blogs to share our learning with a wider audience of our parents, each other, the community and beyond. We regularly get visits from across the world!
To visit our blogs, go to: http://stjohnsblogs.co.uk or click on the links on the left-hand side. To comment on a blog, click on the post you are interested in and either click ‘leave a comment or comments and enter your name and text.
If you have any questions, please click here to email me. Questions and answers will be shown below.
Are the blogs safe? Who can read them?
The blogs can be read by anyone as they are publically available on the internet. Anyone can leave a comment on any of the blog posts, however before the comment goes live and is seen by anyone, it will be checked by either Mr Addison or the class teacher.
Who can write a blog post?
Generally the blog posts will be written in class by the teacher or by the children. If you wish to submit a post for your blog, either speak to your class teacher or email Mr Addison with the content, your name and your class and we will see if we can add it to the blog.
Why have you got pictures of children on your blogs?
We take e-safety very seriously and will only include pictures and names of children where we have parental permission first. If you would like us to remove a certain picture or post, speak to your child’s teacher or email Mr Addison on the link above. We feel that including pictures and videos of children is what makes our blog so popular. Parents and visitors love seeing the children hard at work (and play) and we feel that pictures are integral to our blogs.
