Guidelines on using the Internet at School
Note: You may only use the Internet, including e-mail for school related work.
From February 2006
If you use the Internet inappropriately, for example:
- play games
- reading/write personal e-mails
- access inappropriate sites including e-bay, on-line music, msn
- download software
The following sanctions will apply:
||A warning note will be sent to you.
||You will get a 2 week Internet ban and a letter will be sent to your parents.
||You will get a 1 month Internet ban, a 1 hour after school detention and be referred to your Head of Year.
|Any further offences will incur more severe sanctions.
Any serious offence, even if it is a first offence, will be referred directly to your Head of House or the Deputy Head.
The IT technicians are able to monitor, from the server room, what you are doing on your computer. In recent months they have had more information than they wanted with regards to students personal lives, having monitored some very personal e-mail traffic – resulting in several Internet bans and some very embarrassed pupils when told of their offence.
Network Accounts (Username/password)
If you allow another pupil to use your username and password to log onto the network then both students will receive warnings. Using someone else’s account is a serious matter.
Please note that in the business world using someone else’s network account can result in suspension or dismissal.
