The Web is a great tool for research projects and learning, as it enables pupils to research detailed information that might otherwise be difficult to find. The Internet can engage in real-time data collection in ways that were once impossible and pupils are now able to see the relationship between their studies and the real world. At Pinner Park Junior School we understand the many benefits the internet provides with our learning and encourage the use of modern technology. However, we closely monitor the potential risks through our strict filtering systems and by empowering our pupils with knowledge on how to keep themselves safe on the net.

Safe Technology Use

Pupils are expected to follow the guidelines set out in the Acceptable Use Agreement.
  • We will ask permission from a member of staff before using the Internet.
  • We will only use our own login and password, which we will keep secret.
  • We will not access other people's files.
  • We will only use the computers for school work and homework.
  • We will not bring disks or USB pen drives into school, unless we have permission.
  • We will only use our school safe mail accounts, e-mail people we know, or that my teacher has approved.
  • The messages we send will be polite and sensible.
  • We will not give others our personal information, for example our phone numbers, home or school address, our age or places we regularly visit.
  • We will not arrange to meet up with on-line friends, unless a parent, carer or responsible adult is aware.
  • To help other pupils and myself, we will tell a teacher if we see anything we feel is inappropriate or if we receive messages we do not like.
  • We understand that the school may check the computers we use and monitor the internet sites we visit.
Other Technology

We understand that pupils may need the added security of a mobile phone when they are required to walk to and from school unaccompanied by a parent or carer. In these instances mobile phones are permitted in school but are to be handed into the school office as soon as the pupil has arrived on site and will be returned at the end of the school day.

On-Line Safety for Parents

For parents and carers, this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much. You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking how can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?

Extremism and Radicalisation

It is vital that staff and parents are aware of the possible danger of extremism and radicalisation of children, predominantly but not solely through online activities. At Pinner Park we are committed in supporting parents and pupils to be aware of these dangers. For more information download a pdf copy of the
