As part of the School’s ICT programme we offer students supervised access to the Internet via the school network. Access to the Internet enables
students to explore a huge range of databases and other sources of information. The School uses software to monitor this activity and to block
As part of the School’s Behaviour Policy we wish to make clear to students and to parents what our rules are for Acceptable Internet use. We are sure
that the vast majority of students will abide by these rules, but we wish to make clear that appropriate sanctions in accordance with the Schools’ Behaviour
Policy may be invoked against any student who is found to have breached the rules set out on the attached Acceptable User Policies (AUP).
Attached to this letter are our AUPs for yourself and your child to sign. Please ensure that your son/daughter fully understands, before they sign, and returns
them to the School Office. These documents will be held on your child’s file.
Visual imaging is part of today’s digital world your AUP includes your acceptance that would not preclude your son/daughter from participating in school activities
that could result in his/her image being recorded. We would be pleased if you would sign this section as well.
The best way to help your child to be a safe when using the internet and new technologies is to talk to them and make sure they understand these simple rules:
You should never give out personal details to online ‘friends’. Use a nickname when logging on and don’t share full name, email address, mobile number, school name
and any photos, including photos of family or friends – any picture or video online can be changed or shared without permission.
Talk to your child about what they are doing online and who they are talking to. Get them to show you how to use things you are not familiar with. Keeping the computer
in a family room means that you can share your child’s online experience, they are less likely to act inappropriately (i.e. via webcam) and their online ‘friends’ will
see they are in a family room..
If your child receives a message that upsets them, remind them not to reply, they should save the message and show you or another trusted adult.
Spam and junk emails and texts are not true, don’t reply or send them to anyone else, just delete them.
Don’t open files sent from people you don’t know. They could contain a virus, or worse – an inappropriate image or film.
An online ‘friend’ is anyone you have not met in real life; no matter how long you have been friends with them.
Help your child to understand that some people lie online and that it’s better to keep online ‘mates’ online. They should never meet up with any online ’friends’
without an adult they trust.
Make sure they know how to block someone online and report them if they feel uncomfortable.
Always place the computer he will use in a public area of the home.
Make sure your child feels able to talk to you, let them know that it’s never too late to tell someone if something makes them feel uncomfortable. Don’t blame your
child, let then know you trust them.
As the parent or legal carer of the above student(s), I grant permission for them to have access to use the Internet, school e-mail system, Firefly
(Virtual Learning Environment) and other ICT facilities at school.
I know that my son/daughter has signed an e-safety agreement form and that they have a copy of the “12 rules for responsible ICT use”.
I accept that ultimately the school cannot be held responsible for the nature and content of materials accessed through the Internet and mobile technologies,
but I understand that the school will take every reasonable precaution to keep students safe and to prevent students from accessing inappropriate materials.
These steps include using an educationally filtered service, restricted access e-mail, employing appropriate teaching practice and teaching e-safety skills to students.
I understand that the school can check my child’s computer files, and the Internet sites they visit, and that if they have concerns about their e-safety or
e-behaviour that they will contact me.
I will support the school by promoting safe use of the Internet and digital technology at home and will inform the school if I have any concerns over my child’s e-safety.
I also agree to the school using photographs of my child or
including them in video/audio material, as described in the document ‘Use of digital images – photography, video and audio’. I have read and understood this document.
I understand that images will only be used to support learning activities or in publicity that reasonably promotes the work of the school, and for no other purpose.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, we need your permission before we can photograph or make recordings of your child.
We follow the following rules for any external use of digital images:
Where showcasing examples of students work we only use their first names, rather than their full names.
If showcasing digital video or audio work to an external audience, we take care to ensure that students are not referred to by name on the video or podcast,
and that students’ full names are not given in credits at the end of the piece.
Only images of students in suitable dress are used.
Staff are not allowed to record students on their personal equipment without specific permission from the school.
Examples of how digital recording may be used include:
Your child being photographed (by the classroom teacher, teaching assistant or another child) as part of a learning activity;
e.g. photographing children at work and then sharing the pictures on the Interactive whiteboard in the classroom allowing the children to see their work and
make improvements. Your child’s image for presentation purposes around the school;
e.g. in school wall displays and PowerPoint© presentations to capture images around the school or in the local area as part of a project or lesson.
Your child’s image being used in a presentation about the school and its work in order to share its good practice and celebrate its achievements, which
is shown to other parents, schools or educators;
e.g. within a CDROM / DVD or a document sharing good practice; in our school prospectus or on our school website. In rare events, your child could appear
in the media if a newspaper photographer or television film crew attend an event.
Note: If we, or you, actually wanted your child’s image linked to their name we would contact you separately for permission, e.g. if your child won a national
competition and wanted to be named in local or government literature.

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 delete my own files.
I will not look at other people’s files without their permission.
I will keep my login and password secret.
I will only use my VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) account for school work.
I will only access the Internet for schoolwork.
I will only e-mail people I know.
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 my teacher has given permission.
I will never arrange to meet someone I have only ever previously met on the Internet or by email or in a chat room, unless my parent, carer or teacher
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 tell a teacher / responsible adult.
I agree to my child cycling to and from school.
I realise that it is to their advantage to take a Cycling Proficiency Course. I will ensure that the bike is kept in a roadworthy condition at all times.
I accept that the school will do its best to ensure the security of the cycle, but that neither the school or the London Borough of Hillingdon can accept responsibility for it.
I will ensure that my child has a suitable locking chain or similar device for their cycle whilst in school.
I will encourage my child to wear a cycling helmet.
