After joining on January 31st, the school has since posted 26 updates including information on the lunch menu, information for parents, question and answer tweets, job vacancies, meeting dates and general updates.
The Twitter page is a great platform for parents, guardians and even staff and pupils to keep themselves updated, as well as being able to contact the school quickly or just to ask a general question.
The move to join Twitter comes as an increasing number of schools are joining the social network, including local school Colebourne Primary.
Talking about the decision to set up a Twitter page, Mr Wheeler from Hodge Hill school says:
“We are using it as another way of spreading the good news about the school; most people have a mobile phone to access the Internet so parents and guardians can keep up to date with what’s going on at the school.”
The school are using the Twitter page to test the water, but hope to expand the site in the near future.
“A group of staff is currently updating the Twitter page; we hope to trial it for 3 months and then we hope to get students involved in writing the updates, says Mr Wheeler”
