learning opportunities and reduce risks associated with the internet.


These strategies are as follow:

risk of exposure to in appropriate material.

The school will regularly monitor pupils’ internet usage.

Uploading and downloading of non-approved software will not be permitted.

Virus protection software will be used and updated on a regular basis.

The use of personal memory sticks, CD-ROMs, external hard drives or other digital storage media in school will require a teacher’s permission.

Students will treat others with respect at all times and will not undertake any actions that may bring the school into disrepute.
