Pupil ICT - Acceptable Use Policy
ICT and the related technologies such as email, the internet and mobile devises are an expected part of learning in school. We expect all children to be safe and responsible when using any form of ICT. We expect all children to be aware of our Acceptable use policy and adhere to our rules. If parents / carers have any concerns or issues regarding this policy, then please could you let us know in writing addressed to the headteacher. Thank you.
- Pupils must not share any security passwords or logins with anyone else.
- Pupils will only use ICT in school for school purposes and be aware that their web searches are monitored.
- Pupils will only access software/internet sites which the teacher approves of.
- Pupils will only open/delete their own documents/files.
- Pupils will make sure that all ICT related contact with other children or adults is appropriate and polite.
- Pupils will not deliberately look for, save or send anything that could offend others.
- If a pupil accidentally finds anything inappropriate on the internet, they will tell a teacher/another adult in school.
- Pupils will not give out their personal details such as name, phone number, home address or school name.
- Pupils will be responsible for their behaviour when using ICT as the rules are in place to keep them safe.
- Pupils must not arrange to meet anyone over the internet through social networking sites. They must tell an adult should someone try to contact them and want to meet up in person.
- Pupils need to understand that all ICT access is controlled in school and protected and any misuse can be reported to their parent/carer.
- Pupils will handle ICT equipment with care. Replacing items can be expensive and the equipment is in school to assist their learning and development.
Carlton J & I School makes every effort to keep pupils safe whilst on the internet in school time. Our systems are protected by a filtering system and Sophos Anti-Virus software.
It is the parent/carer’s responsibility to ensure their child/ren has safe access at home.
