What is Whisper?
Due to a suspected increase in safety concerns all over the country during lockdown, if you are worried that you or any member of your family or friends are in danger you can tell us by clicking on the Whisper button. You don’t have to use your name if you don’t want to, but this is a way that you can ask for help while still following the lockdown guidelines. If you click on the Whisper button and tell us what you are concerned about a member of the BAPAC staff will try and help you.
Sharing things that upset you is not always an easy thing to do. Whisper is designed to act as another way you can tell a responsible adult at the school about any issues that you or others might be having. Sometimes that way might be easier than a face to face meeting.
This might include:
- You or someone else being bullied
- Something happening online that you don't feel comfortable with and might need some advice
- If you feel somebody at the school is at risk
- If you have a problem that you need to talk about to somebody
Please don't use bad language as we may not receive your message: the school systems may filter and block things like swear words and stop your message getting to the Whisper account.
We will endeavour to read any concerns raised within 24 hours (note: this may take longer at weekends or holidays).
The school has a duty of care to deal with any issues that involve the safety or well-being of students or pupils, so you can expect it to be acted upon.
If you have left your details we assume that you need someone to get back to you or you wish to discuss this further and a member of staff will contact you.
