Every student is expected to act responsibly when using ICT in school and to respect others at all times. Kingsmeadow ICT should be used exclusively by students to transform their education and to help develop their knowledge and understanding. Students should only use school equipment for school work.
Each student must agree to the school ICT Acceptable User Policy and a failure to do so will result in sanctions.
Students are reminded of three simple steps that can help them to stay safe online:
- Zip It – Keep your personal information private and think about what you say or do online.
- Block It – Block people who send hurtful emails or messages and do not open suspicious emails or attachments. Do not illegal or inappropriate websites.
- Flag It – Tell someone you trust if someone upsets you online or you see upsetting or hurtful content. Tell someone you trust if someone asks to meet you offline.
Students can report anything they are worried about by clicking on our Student Worry Wall, under the Quick Links section.
If students are worried about something and school is closed (school holidays, weekends, after school) they can access the useful websites below:
The ThinkUKnow website has lots of information about both the good and bad parts of the internet and Childline is a free service that lets children talk to someone confidentially if something is worrying them.
Students can report abuse using the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) button shown below, which is a law enforcement agency.
