Using WHISPER - Our Reporting Tool

Welcome to Whisper the new anonymous service that lets you report a problem you may have at school or at home. Whether it be bulllying, online bullying, issues at home or concerns about other fellow students.

This service may be used by students, staff or parents/carers. This service was created by SWGL (South West Grid for Learning) as part of their online safety services for schools.

The service consists of a website button / link that launches an online dialogue-box to capture information or details for anyone who needs to report issues to the school. That information is then sent to an email address nominated by the school. Alternatively you a text service is available.

Both services can be regarded as anonymous if the user chooses to withhold their personal information.

To report a problem either click on the Whisper icon at the the bottom of each website page to be taken to a secure web form or alternatively send an anonymous text by texting:

Sharing things that upset you is not always an easy thing to do. SWGfL 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
