The school has installed computers with Internet access to help our learning.  These rules will keep you safe and help us be fair to others.

  • I will only access the system with my own login and password, which I will keep secret;
  • I will not access other people’s files;
  • I will use the computers only for school work and homework
  • I will respect copyright laws and avoid plagiarism;
  • I will be allowed to bring in memory sticks from outside school but these must be scanned with the virus program;
  • I will use the internet responsibly;
  • I will only send sensible and responsible E-mail messages;
  • I will use email politely always remembering to address staff/adults correctly and sign off correctly.
  • I will not give my home address or telephone number or anyone else’s, or arrange to meet someone over the Internet;
  • I will report any unpleasant material or messages sent to me.  I understand this report would be confidential and would help protect other pupils and myself;
