Rules and Tips for Children

Rules for Responsible Internet Use

E-Safety Top Tips

The school has installed computers and Internet access to help our learning. These rules will keep everyone safe and help us to be fair to others:

  • I will ask permission from a member of staff before using the Internet;
  • I will use only my own login and password, which I will keep secret;
  • I will not access other people’s files;
  • I will use the computers only for school work and homework;
  • I will not bring floppy disks or USB pens into school without permission;
  • I will only e-mail people I know, or my teacher has approved;
  • The messages I send will be polite and sensible;
  • I will not give my home address or phone number, or arrange to meet someone, unless my parent, carer or teacher has given permission;
  • I will ask for permission before opening an e-mail or an e-mail attachment sent by someone I do not know;
  • To help protect other pupils and myself, I will tell a teacher if I see anything I am unhappy with or I receive messages I do not like;
  • I understand that the school may check my computer files and may monitor the Internet sites I visit;
  • I understand that if I deliberately break these rules, I could be stopped from using the Internet or computers.
