Internet Safety

ICT, including the Internet and the VLE, has become an important part of learning in our school. We expect all of our pupils to be responsible and safe when using any ICT so all pupils and their parents are expected to sign an ICT agreement stating acceptable use guidelines.

The internet is a powerful learning tool when used correctly but you and we know that some materials available via the Internet can be illegal, offensive or inaccurate. Our service provider therefore filters all the material that comes into school and keeps a check on all accounts being accessed and, during school, staff will guide pupils towards appropriate materials.

If you follow some simple guidelines, you will find you have few problems. These are Parkside pupils’ top tips:

  • Only use ICT systems in school for school purposes.
  • Never give your password to anyone, including your friends, and change it regularly.
  • If you accidentally come across inappropriate material online, report it to your teacher immediately.
  • Remember that once you send a post, you can’t get it back.
  • Remember too that there is no such thing as privacy or secrecy on the Internet.
  • Never give out personal information online.
  • Never arrange to meet strangers or ‘online friends’.

If you are worried about anything that is happening online or if you just want some extra information and advice, here are some useful contacts:ceop-logo
