These are our 12 Rules for Responsible ICT Use at school

 We must think about some of these when we use the Internet at home.

Keeping safe: stop, think, before you click!

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 not bring files into school without permission.
  • I will ask permission from a member for staff before using the Internet and will not visit Internet sites I know to be banned by the school.
  •  I will only e-mail people my teacher 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 have permission or I know and trust the person who has sent it.
  • I will not give out personal information – such as my name, address, phone number, or e-mail – or send photographs or videos to people I don’t know and trust.
  • I will not arrange to meet someone I have only been in touch with online, unless I have my parent’s or carer’s permission and they can be present.
  • I will keep all my login and password details secret.
  • 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.
