Internet Use and E-Safety

Rules for Responsible Internet Use

The school has installed computers and Internet access to help our learning. These rules will keep everyone 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 only use the computers for school work and homework;
I will not bring floppy disks into school unless I have been given permission;
I will ask permission from a member of staff before using the Internet;
I will only e-mail people I know, or my teacher has approved;
The messages I send will be polite and sensible;
I will not give my home address or telephone number, or arrange to meet someone, unless my parent, carer or teacher has given permission;
To help protect other pupils and myself, I will tell a teacher if I see anything I am unhappy with or I receive messages I do not like;
I understand that the school may check my computer files and may monitor the Internet sites I visit.
