Dear Doncaster College,

Hi I'm currently writing a paper for Uni on Social Media and its impact on the workplace. I thought a school/college environment would provide good detail for study into its impact on the day to day working life.

Can you please tell me, from dates April 2018 -April 2019

1) How many incidents of students misusing social media during that period?
2) Were those on or off-site?
3 What those incidents related to? (sexting, cyber-bullying, accessing or posting improper sites/images etc)
4) What action was taken?

1) How many incidents of staff misusing social media during that period?
2) Were those on or off-site?
3 What those incidents related to? (sexting, cyber-bullying, accessing or posting improper sites/images etc)
4) What action was taken?

And finally what measures have been taken to prevent/reduce any incidents occurring?

Yours faithfully,

Tim

Doncaster College
