Acceptable Use Policy (2020)
The internet is a valuable resource that can raise educational standards by offering both pupils and teachers opportunities to search for information from a very wide range of sources based throughout the world. However, some of the information to be found on the internet will be inappropriate for pupils and we feel it is important to have a policy in place that takes this issue into account.
The school has a duty to ensure that before using the internet with pupils, staff have had the opportunity to discuss how they will deal sensitively with inappropriate use. The following policy helps to define appropriate and acceptable use by both staff and pupils and has been further discussed with Governors and pupils themselves.
