We believe that the use of ICT is an essential part of education in the 21st century. The Internet and other digital information technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone.
On arrival at school, you will receive a login to our system. This includes:
- Space to save documents and files
- An e-mail account
- Filtered access to the Internet
- Logins for various Online Resources
- There are central filtering systems which block sites with inappropriate content. E-mail accounts are accessible to senior staff and may be monitored.
However, there are risks in using any technology and unfortunately, some young people may expose themselves to danger either knowingly or unknowingly. We will teach you about responsible and appropriate behaviours as well as think about how to remain safe and legal when using the Internet and related technology wherever and whenever you may be.
You will sign up to a Student Acceptable Use Agreement this agreement covers important e-safety topics and fosters an understanding of the key issues surrounding usage of ICT and the internet in and out of school. These include the use of school IT systems, email and social media, Privacy, Data Protection, use of images and more.
