Every child inspired, learning & growing


Young people have been born into the ‘digital age’. They use computers, mobile phones, video games consoles etc., as part of their everyday lives. They often seem ‘expert’ compared to parents! But, young people do not have the ‘life
experience’ of adults and need your support. You can provide this by talking to your child about what they are doing.

Keeping safe: stop, think, before you click!

12 rules for responsible ICT use

These rules will keep everyone safe and help us to be fair to others.


·        I will only use the school’s computers for schoolwork and homework.

·        I will only edit or delete my own files and not look at, or change, other people’s files without their permission.

·        I will keep my logins and passwords secret.

·        I will not bring files into school without permission or upload inappropriate material to my workspace.

·        I am aware that some websites and social networks have age restrictions and I should respect this.

·        I will not attempt to visit Internet sites that I know to be banned by the school.

·        I will only e-mail people I know, or a responsible adult has approved.

·        The messages I send, or information I upload, will always be polite and sensible.

·        I will not open an attachment, or download a file, unless I know and trust the person who has sent it.

·        I will not give my home address, phone number, send a photograph or video, or give any other personal information that could be used to identify me, my family or my friends, unless a trusted adult has given permission.

·        I will never arrange to meet someone I have only ever previously met on the Internet, unless my parent/carer has given me permission and I take a responsible adult with me.

·        If I see anything I am unhappy with or I receive a message I do not like, I will not respond to it but I will show a teacher / responsible adult.
