The aim of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is to ensure that pupils will benefit from learning opportunities offered by the school’s internet resources in a safe and effective manner. Internet use and access is considered a school resource and privilege. Therefore, if the school AUP is not adhered to this privilege will be withdrawn and appropriate sanctions will be imposed. Every child needs to sign and return the AUP below. Please can parents/guardians discuss the main points from the Pupil AUP Agreement (below) with your child and then complete the form acknowledging the agreement and return to school. Thanks for your support.

National Online Safety Survey
The London Grid for Learning and NSPCC are running a national pupil online safety survey free to all schools. The data will be used to gain a greater understanding of behaviours at a national level and every school participating will get a copy of the results for their school. One of the biggest challenges facing schools is knowing what your children are accessing and when they are accessing it. The data your school could get out of completing this survey could be really useful in informing the school about the current habits of your children and used to inform online safety delivery in your school. While the survey is free to all schools you need to sign up in advance of taking the survey. More information can be found in the link below. https://www.lgfl.net/online-safety/survey
