Note:  All Internet and email activity is subject to monitoring

I will        –  only use the school ICT for schoolwork that the teacher has asked me to do.

I will  – avoid looking for, or showing other people, things that may be upsetting.

I will  – show respect for the work that other people have done.

I will  –  only use other people’s work or pictures if I have permission to do so.

I will  – treat the ICT equipment carefully and respectfully; if I accidentally damage something I will tell my teacher.

I will  –  keep my personal information private and not share it online with anyone.

I will  –  not download anything from the Internet unless my teacher has asked me to.

I will  –  let my teacher know if anybody asks me for personal information.

I will  –  let my teacher know if anybody says or does anything to me that is hurtful or upsets me.

I will  –  be respectful to everybody online; I will treat everybody the way that I want to be treated.

I will  –  practise online safety at all times, and will inform an adult if I see or hear anything upsetting online.

I understand – that some people on the Internet are not who they say they are, and some people can be nasty.  I will tell my teacher if I am ever concerned in school, or tell my parents if I am at home.

Online communication

Whilst we have our Microsoft Teams platform, this is used for educational purposes only. Children are expected to only communicate on this platform in the unlikely event of a school closure e.g. snow day. During this limited time, the only communication will take part between the teacher and class peers.
