We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with tootoot!
Tootoot is a safe, secure and diverse web-based safeguarding tool, which allows students of all age ranges – from Primary right through to University – to report incidents of bullying, problems they could be having in class or any issues that may be concerning them in an anonymous, confidential and discrete manner. These individual cases are monitored, managed and resolved by staff/mentors within the school.
Tootoot reduces the friction and stigma attached to the reporting of such incidents and ultimately provides us with the tools required to track, monitor and resolves cases efficiently and significantly reduce bullying.
Tootoot not only encourages students to report incidents of bullying, it also encourages them to work together and strengthen communication links between them and their teachers by removing barriers.
Each student will be given a username and password which allows them to log in and use tootoot. They are then able to quickly report incidents and concerns directly to their school. Each school has their own sub-domain where only teachers and students from our school will be able to communicate with one another. All students are anonymous at the point of reporting but identities can be uncovered by the schools designated tootoot administrator ONLY if it appears that the student’s emotional or physical well-being is at serious risk.
Students can access tootoot on a web-enabled device (computers, laptops, tablets and mobiles) by following these 4 simple steps:
Step 1: Type www.tootoot.co.uk into their web browser
Step 2: Click ‘Login to tootoot’
Step 3: Start typing the school name (High Tunstall College of Science) and select it from the box
Step 4: Enter username and password, and log their concern with the school (students can obtain their log in details from their ICT teacher)
