We’re keen for all schools to start using Twitter. It’s a fast growing channel of communicating via social media and unlike Facebook, is easy and allows for sending messages quickly.

It’s not meant to replace the school newsletter but is a useful addition. Ideally, the password and login (available via email from should be shared with two or three key staff who understand the medium and who can post useful items as and when needed.

There is no expectation to slavishly post something every day – just as and when. It could be a reminder about a non-uniform day, or a picture of the team having won a sports match. It’s a friendly informal way of building bridges with parents.

Twitter users should read this guidance before getting started. To read our Guide to using social media click here
