Using ICT at School and Home Safety
As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of ICT skills, Singlewell School is providing supervised access to the Internet. We believe that the effective use of the World Wide Web and e-mail is worthwhile and is an essential skill for children as they grow up in the modern world. We have forms stating the schools Rules for Responsible Internet Use which we ask that parent/carers sign and return to the school office so that your child may use the Internet at school.
Although there are concerns about pupils having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to reduce this risk in school. Our school Internet provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
Whilst every endeavour is made to ensure that suitable restrictions are placed on the ability of children to access inappropriate materials, the School cannot be held responsible for the nature or content of materials accessed through the Internet. The School will not be liable for any damages arising from your child’s use of the Internet facilities.
The rules our school follow when using the internet are:
Key Stage 1
- We only use the internet when an adult is with us
- We can click on the buttons or links when we know what they do
- We can search the Internet with an adult
- We always ask if we get lost on the Internet
- We can send and open emails together
Key Stage 2
- We ask permission before using the Internet
- We only use websites that an adult has chosen
- We tell an adult if we see anything we are uncomfortable with
- We never give out personal information or passwords
