Microsoft Teams Code of Conduct for Parents

Code of Conduct for Parents and Carers

When parents and carers are participating in an audio or video conference with staff from the school on Microsoft Teams, or any other video conferencing software, they should remember to maintain a parent-teacher professional relationship and they should conduct themselves as they would when meeting a teacher or member of staff face to face. All parents and carers are expected to adhere to the following code of conduct when using Microsoft Teams:

  • Parents and carers should use their child’s approved St. Mary’s CE Primary School account
  • Parents and carers should behave in a respectful, patient, polite and courteous manner at all times
  • Parents and carers should find a workspace that is quiet, safe and free from distractions; bedrooms should be avoided; thought should also be given to the background that can be viewed (e.g. neutral with no personal photographs on display)
  • Parents and carers must be dressed appropriately at all times (e.g. no pyjamas, clothing worn must suitably cover top and bottom of body)
  • Parents and carers should avoid public displays of affection
  • Parents and carers should remain attentive during sessions
  • Parents and carers should not record online interactions, including taking screen shots or photos; if a meeting/session is to be recorded this will be done by the teacher or member of staff
  • Parents and carers should not upload, share or forward material that could be considered offensive, inappropriate or illegal
  • Parents and carers should not make comments that could be considered offensive. This explicitly includes any form of cyberbullying
  • Parents and carers must make sure they have ‘logged off’ the call/meeting correctly once it is finished – before turning off any devices
