Safety Using Social Media

Usernames and passwords are personal and confidential and must never be shared with others.

ICT Acceptable Use

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.

We expect all staff and students to abide by the following rules when using ICT equipment and accessing the internet:
  • Do not display or send rude and/or offensive messages or pictures;
  • Do not eat or drink when using school computers;
  • Do not use the internet in school for entertainment when you should be using it for learning purposes;
  • Do not access other people’s files;
  • Do not use obscene or offensive language;
  • Do not give personal information out over the internet;
  • Report any misuse of facilities to a member of staff confidentially;
  • The school will check files and internet use at regular intervals;
  • Do not copy or use other people’s work without permission (including from the internet);
  • Do not use the internet for personal financial gain, gambling, political purposes or advertising.


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.
