The use of ICT including the Internet, e-mail, learning platforms and today’s mobile technologies are an integral element of learning in our school. In making this as successful and as beneficial as possible for all learners, we expect all pupils to act safely and responsibly when using technology both within, and outside of, the school environment.
The Hollins’ ICT Acceptable Use Policy forms part of the wider School Online Safety Policy and in association with both the school’s Behaviour Management Policy and Home-School Agreement, outlines those principles we expect our pupils to uphold for the benefit of both themselves and the wider school community. Your support in achieving these aims is essential and I would therefore ask that you please read and discuss the enclosed ICT Acceptable Use Policy with your child and return it to school. Copies of these policies are available on the Policies section of this website.
The policy is also asking for consent in using your child’s image for educational or marketing purposes e.g. in the school prospectus, website, learning platform, leaflets or newspaper/ media articles. If you DO NOT wish your child’s images to be used please make sure you tick the box on the data collection forms given out at the beginning of each academic year.
