ICT equipment is provided in various locations throughout the school. Some portable equipment is also used to support learning outside school times. Computer equipment is expensive to repair and replace and, as with all equipment, it should be used responsibly.
Staff and students are allocated user names and passwords in order to access the networked facilities in school. A separate email username and password also allows access to the VLE outside the school.
E-bullying is also known as cyber-bullying and refers to bullying by use of electronic devices such as computers or mobile phones, using email, instant messaging, social networking sites, text messages and websites. The school is proactive in raising awareness of bullying and is involved in anti-bullying projects. We make parents/carers aware to monitor students’ use of the internet at home as we cannot resolve e-bullying issues which occur on external technology when the situation is happening outside of the school.
