Teachers need 'clearer' social networking rules, say unions

Teachers using social media websites should receive clearer guidance, unions have said, in the wake of several high profile disciplinary cases.

The General Teaching Council for Wales (GTCW) said five out of 21 cases last year involved teachers interacting with pupils on sites such as Facebook.

Its code of conduct says communication should be "appropriate".

But a host of unions, including the National Union of Teachers, have said guidance needs to be clearer.
