The purpose of internet use in school is to raise educational standards, to promote pupil achievement, to support the professional work of staff and to enhance the schools management information and administration systems.
Internet use is part of the statutory curriculum and is a necessary tool for learning. It is an essential element in 21st Century life for education, business and social interaction. Access to the internet is therefore an entitlement for pupils who show a responsible and mature approach to its use.
We accept that pupils will use the internet outside school and will therefore need to learn, inside school, how to evaluate internet information and how to take care of their own safety and security.
For parents who would like advice on how to take care of their children's safety and security when using the internet at home, please follow the link to the CEOP website.
