Computing Acceptable Use Agreement & Permission Form
Dallington School uses digital technology in order to provide the highest quality education for children. These technologies provide powerful tools that can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and provide context. However, children do need guidance as to how to use technology safely.
The Computing Acceptable Use Agreements are intended to ensure:
- that young people will be responsible users and stay safe while using the internet and other communications technologies for educational, personal and recreational use.
- that Dallington School systems and users are protected from accidental or deliberate misuse that could put the security of the systems and its users at risk.
- that parents and carers are aware of the importance of e-safety and are involved in the education and guidance of young people with regard to their on-line behaviour.
Dallington School will ensure that children have access to digital technologies and will, in return, expect the children to agree to be responsible users. A copy of the child Computing Acceptable Use Agreement is attached to this permission form, so that parents and carers will be aware of the school’s expectations of the young people in their care. To reinforce its importance, parents, as well as carers, are required to sign their child’s Computing Acceptable Use Agreement alongside their child.
Parents, as well as carers if responsible for the children, are requested to sign the permission form to show their support of the school in this important aspect of the school’s work.
