This Code of Conduct is written for students of primary-school age. Everyone taking part in an Ri Online Masterclass must read and abide by the Code of Conduct.
This code of conduct is to ensure that Ri Masterclasses are open, safe, fulfilling, and a welcoming environment for everyone’s thoughts and ideas.
Everyone involved in an Ri Masterclass is responsible for following the Code of Conduct. Adults and older students should see the main Ri Online Masterclasses Code of Conduct. Anyone who does not follow these guidelines may have to be removed from the session and any future sessions, and the Masterclass organisers may inform students’ parents/carers and teachers.
During an Ri Masterclass you should:
Avoid potentially harmful language, which means:
We will NOT accept any behaviour which is unkind, upsetting or excludes any one person or group of people.
If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that is enough reason to stop doing it.
You should use any interactive features sensibly and appropriately. Do not spam the chat with repeated or irrelevant material, as this stops other from being able to participate.
There will be at least one supervisor present in each virtual room. These are the only people who can send or receive private messages.
If you are uncomfortable about anything, for example, something another person is saying or doing, you can message one of the supervisors privately. Please also tell a supervisor if anyone is breaking the code of conduct or acting inappropriately in any way. They will deal with the matter appropriately and as quickly as possible.
Supervisors may need to pass details of your comment or complaint on to other such as the Ri’s Safeguarding team, particularly if it raises any concerns over the safety of yourself or another person. Everything will be treated with respect, care and privacy.
In order to keep everyone safe:
If you are concerned about another person, or if you are not happy with how a supervisor has handled a concern you reported to them, you can contact the Ri’s safeguarding team directly on firstname.lastname@example.org (this inbox is usually monitored several times a week during working hours).
If your enquiry or concern is more urgent you can contact one of the Ri's Designated Safeguarding Officers via phone:
Any situation will be handled following the Ri’s Safeguarding Policy. The Safeguarding team will inform you of the procedures to follow based on the information provided.
Please bear in mind that all reports are private and details should not be shared.
