Rules for Responsible Internet use

Rules for Responsible Internet Use - keeping yourself safe online!

We use the school computers and Internet connection for learning. These rules will help us to be fair to others and keep everyone safe.

    • I will only use the computers or access the internet with permission from an adult.

    • I will ask permission before entering any website, unless my teacher has already approved that site.

    • I will not look at or delete other people’s files.

    • I will not bring USB drives into school without permission.

    • I will only e-mail people I know, or my teacher has approved and the messages I send will be polite and sensible.

    • I will not give out my home address or phone number, email address or arrange to meet someone.

    • I will not open emails or attachments from people I do not know.

    • If I see anything I am unhappy with or I receive messages I do not like, I will tell a teacher immediately.

    • I understand the school may check my computer files and will monitor the Internet sites I visit.

    • I will respect the computer equipment.

    • I understand that if I deliberately break these rules, I could be stopped from using the Internet or computers.
