Of course other schools (especially secondary like mine) will make other choices about social media. There are a few of our teachers who have 'professional' twitter accounts (separate from their private accounts) that are designed for pupils to follow. Equally some departments have Facebook Pages where pupils will ask questions during key revision periods and other pupils or teachers can answer them. Obviously these things need to be transparent, but a 'no contact' policy can be a bad thing sometimes.

I'd love to know when @pingleby?

I don't disagree with you on that. But a 'no contact' policy to me means 'no contact'. I agree with 'no contact' through staff personal accounts, but think we're missing the educational potential if we rule out all form of contact through social media.
